There is no place like New York! With a city this rich in culture, scandal and diversity, the possibilities for theatrical reenactment are endless. The Players Theatre Short Play and Musical Festival encourage playwrights to mine this precious resource by offering an annual NYC – themed festival each June. Celebrating its 5th year, “Only in New York” opens Thursday, June 4 and runs for three weeks. Each week five original short plays, by five separate playwrights will be presented and a “Best of the Week” production will be selected by audience vote.

Playwrights from all over the country submitted their plays earlier this year. The festival panel selected 15 plays for presentation. The playwrights are responsible for their own production and act as producer for their piece. Many of the playwrights have participated in other festivals at the Players Theatre and several were award winners in past years. Artistic Director, Brenda Bell, commented “This year has an incredible array of NYC-themed subject. Everything is explored from the underbelly of the crime world to auditioning to the diversity of a NYC park bench. We are pleased to welcome back quite a few playwrights from previous festivals”.

The NYC Festival runs June 4th – 21st at the Players Theatre in the 3rd floor Steve and Marie Sgouros Black Box located at 115 MacDougal Street in the West Village. Performances are Thursday Saturday at 7p and Sunday at 3p. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online at: or at the box office. A complete listing of the plays is below. The Short Play and Musical Festival (SPF) is presented three times a year. The October theme is horror and the February theme is SEX!
