Powerhouse Theater is a collaboration between New York Stage and Film and Vassar College dedicated to both emerging and established artists in the development and production of new works for theater and film. The Powerhouse program consists of an eight-week residency on the Vassar campus during which more than 250 professional artists and 50 apprentices in the Powerhouse Training Program live and work together to create new theater works. Recent works that have been developed at Powerhouse include the hit Broadway musical Hamilton; Steve Martin and Edie Brickell's original musical Bright Star; Itamar Moses, Michael Friedman and Daniel Aukin's The Fortress of Solitude; and Richard Greenberg's The Babylon Line.
