The Playwrights' Center is, in my opinion, one of the gems in the Minneapolis theatre community. Not only do they help budding new playwrights workshop their plays, but they also keep local actors employed, host fabulous events (such as the Ruth Easton series and Playlabs), and provide a number of classes, lectures, and seminars to help educate and enlighten. Their AMAZING staff works tirelessly to make sure that each artist that comes through their doors has a fantastic experience. As one of their interns, I saw first-hand the amazing impact that PWC has on each playwright, actor, and designer that they embrace. My life--and the lives of countless other theatre professionals--would not be the same without The Playwrights' Center.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Rar too many ways to name, but the impact of the organization is both professional and personal--for myself and many other artists.

Give them a bunch of money, relocate them to a larger, state of the art facility, and maybe convince them to hire me :)

The Playwrights' Center changes the lives of the artists who pass through its doors - both in an individual way, and also by being a leading voice in the national conversation around keeping the American theatre vital, vibrant, and relevant.

PWC offers great theater to the community - many times free - and wonderful training and support to it's artists. Nice, friendly, competent, always seeking excellence - just some thoughts that come to mind about the organization.

Of all of the organizations serving playwrights in the United States, the Playwrights Center is (to my mind) the most generous, creative, and innovative in its support. So many of its Fellows and Core Writers have gone on to contribute outstanding new work to the American theater; every playwright benefits in some way from the esteem and visibility they bring to the profession, too.

So many different ways, from connection with colleagues to learning about creative opportunities.

The Playwrights' Center is the coolest, under-the-radar fountain of fresh artistic talent in the Twin Cities. Since I first attended a fundraiser - where patrons could "buy a playwright" who composed an act in less than 20 minutes to be performed by the cities' top actors - I've been smitten. I couldn't and still can't believe such an incredible source of new thought and creative energy is right in my own backyard!

What I've enjoyed most are the readings . . . the breadth and depth of new script content is pretty stunning. You never know what you're going to hear that night, but can be sure it's something so innovative, original, and timely you haven't seen it before. To be part of the audience and the discussion after is such a thrill. Where else can a pedestrian help shape the trajectory of art of this caliber?

Shine more light on their successes . . . reach a more diverse audience . . . raise their ticket prices - they're well worth it.

The Playwrights' Center is in the business of saving the American theatre--from endless seasons of classic plays, most often interpreted respectfully... This is the place where new plays are created--and they are created in a manner entirely respectful to the artists at hand. I feel lucky to have the Center in my life and in my professional career. I am supported by the incredible staff, inspired by the work of other playwrights, and motivated to keep writing for the American theatre in hopes that it can be the place where we all go to be infused with ideas and questions and exciting images and complexity.

Every play I've written has been workshopped here.

Make more of them--put branches in other American cities, but decidely not New York City or Los Angeles. Maybe Austin and Seattle--smaller places, where writers can make lives.

As an emerging playwright I have been so pleased with the enthusiastic and complete support from each staff person at the Playwright's Center.
The Early Stages reading of my play a few months ago was a rewarding and inspiring event thanks to the organization's professionalism and dedication to
new work.

I'm both a "client served" but also a member of the public that really appreciates what the Playwrights' Center does. A) They have created a safe space for playwrights to make their art. B) They support emerging AND mid-career playwrights. C) They have helped make Minneapolis a hotbed for new work both with funding but also by serving as a home to playwrights and actors interested in new work.

I couldn't be more enthusiastic about The Playwrights' Center. Its support of playwrights and the composition of new plays is long-standing, wide-ranging, and truly robust. It's a home for playwrights in Minneapolis and playwrights around the country, in a time when an artistic home for playwrights is rare. The Center's professionalism and the staff's artistic and organizational talent have made it a magnet for theatre makers for many years. Please help The Playwrights' Center continue to grow.

As a former employee of this organization, I gotta say: It's got game. These people are the real deal, constantly re-thinking for smarter, better service to the field. Their reputation nationally is for excellence, quality and influence.

Associating with the Center is a must for playwrights, because it's such a hub for support and resources; countless careers have begun here.

The Playwrights' Center should hire a brilliant and energetic new artistic director. Oh, wait. They just did! Can't wait to see what the coming years will bring.
