Playwrights Welcome is a program created to support and inspire playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists. The goal is simple: to provide free access to theatre for theatre writers around the country. Developed for the Dramatists Guild of America members, Playwrights Welcome is a national ticketing initiative created by Samuel French, a Concord Theatricals company, along with input from other publishing and licensing houses.
We are invested in the success and artistic health of our industry’s writers, and by extension the vibrancy of the American theatre. We’re also aware that attending theatre is an integral part to how writers learn their craft and grow as artists.
We are proud to take part in Playwrights Welcome, which offers available tickets to professional playwrights on the day of a performance, free of charge. To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at our theatre, just come to the box office a half hour prior to showtime and present your Dramatists Guild membership card. Feel free to call and check on ticket availability beforehand, and please note that not every show is eligible for inclusion in this program.
