The Playroom Theater, a small theater with a
purpose on West Forty Sixth Street. Created by longtime
theatrical producer Eric Krebs, The Playroom Theater features a 62 seat
boutique theater, appropriate for rehearsals, readings, auditions, producers'
presentations and workshop productions.
Conceived of as an artists' work space for
writers, directors, composers, actors, producers and others committed to the
professional theater arts and its industry.
“The idea of The Playroom has grown out of my
desire to create a small and financially manageable space in the heart of the
theater district,” commented Krebs. “I want this to be a place where industry
professionals can pop over for a reading, a backer's audition or a small
production of a work in progress. In addition, many colleges and conservatories
are anxious to showcase their graduates in a centralized and intimate setting;
The Playroom will be perfectly set up for that purpose.”
Krebs has been a theatrical producer for many
years, in both the commercial and the not-for-profit theater worlds. He was the
founder of the regional George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, New Jersey,
where he also served at Rutgers University as a professor of theater for 34
years. He is current professor of Fine and Performing Arts at City University's
On Broadway, Krebs was the producer of ELECTRA, IT
AIN'T NOTHING BUT THE BLUES and BILL MAHER: Victory Begins at Home and THE
DINNER PARTY. Off Broadway, he was the founder and director of the Douglas
Fairbanks and John Houseman Theaters which were staples of the off-Broadway
world for more than 20 years.
