The PlayLabs reading series invites audiences to engage directly with playwrights as they develop new work. Each reading includes a post-show reception with wine and refreshments, offering you a chance to discuss the work and mingle with the playwrights, actors, MCC leadership, and other audience members. This series features some of the most exciting writers working today, their voices brought to life by first-rate New York City actors. Past readings have featured Michael Shannon (Oscar nominee for Revolutionary Road), Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Marin Ireland (Reasons to Be Pretty), and many others.
