How off-Broadway's Irish Repertory Theatre changed its model and pivoted to the digital world.
The mission of Irish Repertory Theatre is to provide a context for understanding the contemporary Irish-American experience through evocative works of theater, music, and dance. This mission is accomplished by staging the works of Irish and Irish-American classic and contemporary playwrights, encouraging the development of new works focused on the Irish and Irish-American experience, and producing the works of other cultures interpreted through the lens of an Irish sensibility.
In its more than 31 seasons, Irish Repertory Theatre has presented over 190 productions and worked with more than 500 company members. Irish Rep has continued to be a home for Irish and Irish-American theatermakers, theater audiences, and excellence in theater. More than 50,000 audience members annually attend productions where they experience the company’s engaging perspective on the Irish and their unique and extraordinary contributions to the world of drama. Irish Repertory Theatre is the only year-round theater company in New York City devoted exclusively to bringing Irish and Irish-American works to the stage.
