"Manhattan Repertory Theatre is one of the most intelligently run small theatres I've ever been in. It has been a great experience. " 
- Rob Corbett , Playwright/Producer - MAN CAVE -

“We loved our experience at MRT! Ken runs such a tight ship, and he does it with great passion and humor. The 10 Minute Play Contest was a blast! We had so much fun doing the show multiple times, and Ken was incredibly supportive of the writers, actors and directors. He clearly loves presenting new theatrical works. And he keeps his theatre immaculate! He is also great with emails - very responsive and specific.

Overall a fantastic experience, and I hope to come back again!”

Recent Review of Play Production Full-Length Play:

DIRTY LINEN by Ofem Ojah

Review by Anthony J. Piccione - OnStageBlog.com

"We need more comedies like this, which aren’t afraid to explore cultural issues in a thought-provoking manner, while still being able to maintain a spirit of farcical craziness that often make so many comedies as entertaining as they are. If you have the chance this coming weekend, be sure to stop by Manhattan Rep, and see this gem during one of its last performances while you can."

He’s Your Daddy by Mike Zielinski

Review by Anthony J. Piccione - OnStageBlog.com

“The overall show is a fun and silly experience, and while it’s full on raunchy humor that probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it managed to please this reviewer. If it ever returns to the stage at Manhattan Rep, it’s definitely worth your time.”

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.

Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.

Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
