So here is the ultimate Surprise for a Birthday or Anniversary! 

Imagine it is your husband's birthday, and 30 to 50 of your closest friends show up at Manhattan Rep to see "a friend's daughter's play."

Everyone arrives, the show begins, and then your husband slowly goes into shock for the play is about HIM and his life, and at the end all the actors sing "Happy Birthday," and then his Birthday Party begins with a Birthday reception in the theatre!

Manhattan Rep will write, cast, direct and put together a 15 to 20 minute play about ANYONE YOU KNOW.  Your spouse, your children, a couple, even a family. It can be a Comedy, or a heart - felt sentimental Love Story, or a Roast, whatever you want!  We will work with you to create a specific and professional short play about a family member or a loved one, and then bring it to life for the biggest, craziest surprise anyone could ever experience!!
