Two River Theater, under the leadership of Artistic Director John Dias and Managing Director Michael Hurst, develops and produces great American theater created by the today’s most gifted, adventurous artists. Each year, more than 55,000 patrons and guests come through our doors to see exceptional productions in our intimate performance spaces, the Joan and Robert Rechnitz Theater and the Marion Huber Theater.

Two River Theater is recognized in the national theater community for our new-play commissioning program, launched in 2010 to create a pipeline for developing work that contributes to the vitality and future of the American theater. Commissions currently in development include plays by Sarah DeLappe, Madeleine George, David Greenspan, Lisa Kron, Tony Meneses, Martin Moran, and Tanya Saracho, and new musicals by the teams of Joe Iconis and Joe Tracz, and Daniel Maté and Marshall Pailet. Each season, we host numerous artist residencies, workshops, and readings to support the development of new work for the American theater, including separate week-long retreats with Clubbed Thumb and NYU’s Graduate Musical Theater Writing program. Our annual programs include a Cabaret of New Songs for the Musical Theater; Crossing Borders, a five-day festival of new plays by Latino writers and free community events; and Nosotros, a program that fosters a closer relationship between theater and Latino artists and audiences.

We cultivate a new generation of theatergoers through innovative arts education programs that introduce young people to the theater and create opportunities for them to engage with renowned theater artists. The theater’s “A Little Shakespeare” series, launched during our 20th Anniversary Season, showcases an annual production of a Shakespeare play performed by high-school students and includes both public performances and student matinees. Each year, our education programs and student matinees serve students in 50 schools throughout the state. Classroom residencies support academic achievement and, in partnership with schools and community organizations across our region, we offer multiple programs that introduce at-risk adolescents to theater.

Two River Theater was founded by Joan and Robert Rechnitz in 1994. The theater is easily accessible by car, train, or bus, with great restaurants, shopping and hotels within walking distance of the theater. For more information, visit tworivertheater.org or call 732.345.1400.
