Musical Theater

Every age. Every stage.

92nd Street Y is passionate about forging paths, making opportunities and offering space and support for artists to produce new and innovative work.

The artists of Musical Theater Development Lab create work that challenges and intersects the vocabularies of both musical theater and concert dance. The 2018-2019 Lab focus is Theater for Young Audiences. The Lab brings together artists in a safe space to explore new techniques in both generating performance, and collaborative processes.

Megan Doyle, Director of 92Y Musical Theater and Founder of the Lab comments, “The artists of Musical Theater Development Lab create work that challenges and intersects the vocabularies of both musical theater and concert dance. The Lab brings together artists in a safe space to explore new techniques in both generating performance, and collaborative processes.”

The Lab supports up to 10 emerging hybrid artists for a one-year residency of educational and creative events. The Resident Artist series provides up to 2 years of production support towards their Lab Production, an original evening-length Musical Theater work presented by 92nd Street Y.
