Since 1983, the Playwrights Horizons Theater School has provided thousands of theater students with intensive theater training, through a four-year program that emphasizes professional development and interdisciplinary theater training. The curriculum includes courses in acting, directing, dramaturgy, playwriting, design, musical theater, movement, voice, speech, script analysis, and theater management for over 150 students each year.
Playwrights Horizons leases two floors of space at 440 Lafayette Street, which include 13 rehearsal studios and two theater spaces. When the studios and spaces are not in use by the Playwrights Horizons Theater School, they are rented out as Playwrights Rehearsal Studios. Conveniently located and affordably priced, spaces at Playwrights Rehearsal Studios are rented to hundreds of theater artists, not-for-profit arts groups and educational organizations annually.
