About Us

Our name "The Seeing Place" is the literal translation of the Greek word for theater (theatron):

". . . the place where we go to see ourselves."

The Seeing Place is an actor-driven company dedicated to exploring the intersection between the actor's voice and the playwright's words, by reinterpreting masterful works live and in the moment to make them relevant, visceral, truthful, and accessible to a modern audience.

We live up to our name by engaging our community in a vivid conversation about what makes us human. Connection. Learning. Humanity. That's what theater is all about.


The Seeing Place - a 501c3 charitable organization - is built by actors and managed by actors to be a base for actors who want to hone their craft in a creative and supportive artistic home, resulting in unparalleled dedication and excellence. A multi-award nominated ensemble, we are forcefully committed to four key elements of theatre-making: 

  • Mentoring and developing the next generation of independent, socially-conscious theater-makers; 
  • Honoring the acting craft as central to the theater-making process, using the rehearsal practices of the Group Theatre to bring vivid, raw, "fully lived" storytelling to our community; 
  • Creating edgy and compelling reinterpretations of works by master playwrights that reflect the struggles and triumphs of our current society; and 
  • Making theater accessible for low-income New Yorkers by subsidizing 50% of our tickets.
