About Us

vitruvian-froggie-grey-palatino

 

Broadway Play Publishing Inc was established in New York City in 1982 with a mission to publish and license the stage performance rights of the finest contemporary American plays.

Our growing catalog consists of nearly 1,000 plays and over 300 authors, among them such theatrical luminaries as Constance Congdon, María Irene Fornés, A R Gurney, Tony Kushner, Neil LaBute, Richard Nelson, Eric Overmyer, José Rivera, Naomi Wallace, and many others. Our authors have been produced on Broadway and Off, in London’s West End, and in theaters across the United States and around the world. They have won Nobel Prizes, Pulitzer Prizes, Tony Awards, Obie Awards, the MacArthur Genius Grant, Guggenheim Fellowships, and National Endowment for the Arts grants.

From the sidesplitting hilarity of THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) to the extravagantly imaginative ON THE VERGE OR THE GEOGRAPHY OF YEARNING to the epic brilliance of ANGELS IN AMERICA, our catalog is distinguished by intellectually and theatrically adventurous works. We are proud to make all of the plays in our catalog available to you.

Christopher W D Gould graduated from Tufts University with a degree in Theater. Upon arrival in New York, he wrote theater reviews for Backstage, features for Other Stages, and read plays for the Women’s Project.
