East Lynne Theater Company (ELTC), celebrating the American Spirit on Stage since 1980, was named after a popular play from the 1880s. The company specializes in producing American stage classics and history-based new works that deal with the uniquely American experience. Warren Kleiwer founded ELTC as a professional Equity theater, hoping “it could become a vehicle for rediscovering the enduring values of the American heritage and for deepening our understanding of what it means to be an American.” He also hoped that others would join in this rediscovery, and, happily, this has begun to happen.
In 1996, “The Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute” at Ohio State University asked to house the company’s archives. ELTC and Artistic Director Gayle Stahlhuth are in the newest edition of The Cambridge Guide to American Theatre (2008). In October 2009, The New Jersey Theatre Alliance bestowed its Achievement of Excellence Award on ELTC, for its "30 years of celebrating America’s heritage through productions and educational programs.”
