Mission & History of The Prospect Theater

Prospect Theater Company is dedicated to a bright future for the American musical.
We develop and produce new works, envisioned and implemented by emerging artists.
Our artists work in diverse genres and styles but share an interest in re-inventing the art form of musical theater for the 21st Century.

Prospect creates educational and training opportunities, and sustains a supportive network within the field. We provide a forum for artists and audiences to connect and learn from each other, and we foster the work of a vibrant community of both emerging and established artists.

Through the stories we tell, many of which are inspired by history or classic works of literature, we strive to connect theater’s present to its past—in order to build its future. We value intelligent, thought-provoking work, which reverberates with history and resonates in the heart.

Since its incorporation in June of 1998, Prospect Theater Company has supported an outstanding and diverse group of emerging artists in NYC’s off-Broadway scene. Originally founded by five graduates of Princeton University, Prospect has grown to include a network of over 1,000 artists. Over the past decade, we have presented the New York and/or world premieres of more than 30 new musicals.

TREE TALES

an interactive outdoor arts experience

Sunday, May 16, 1p – 4:30p

Saturday, May 22, 1p – 4:30p

(weather permitting)

Come “play” in Riverside Park with Prospect!  Follow a group of artist guides as they direct you through the trees of Crabapple Grove.  Along the path, choose your own adventure from an array of 15 original stories penned by a line-up of imaginative theater creators, and engage with a tale created just for you! 

This is a guided “walk-through” experience with audience groups of 12 people gaining timed entry every 15 minutes.  Audience groups will begin together at a set time, but each person’s walk is individually determined and may take slightly different lengths of time to complete.

Who knows what clever and inventive things we will think of next!
