Primary Stages is an Off-Broadway not-for-profit theater company dedicated to inspiring, supporting, and sharing the art of playwriting.

Since its founding in 1984, Primary Stages has produced more than 120 new plays, including Donald Margulies' 'The Model Apartment,' David Ives' 'All in the Timing,' Billy Porter's 'While I Yet Live.' Kate Fodor's 'Rx,' Charles Busch's 'The Tribute Artist,' A.R. Gurney's 'Black Tie,' Horton Foote's 'Harrison, TX,' and more.
The latest comic melodrama written by and starring Charles Busch tells the story of one woman’s tumultuous passage from convent girl to glittering cabaret chanteuse to infamous madame of a string of brothels.
In this solo piece, comedian Judy Gold and playwright Kate Moira Ryan weave actual interviews with Jewish mothers across the United States together with memories from Gold’s childhood.
Primary Stages welcomes back Kate Hamill, playwright and star of their production of "Pride and Prejudice," with her fresh new take on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel of love and duty, "Little Women."
