What we're about

NYC Actors Meetup meets regularly throughout the year and provides actors, entertainment professionals, and theatre-lovers of all skill levels a chance to read a role and explore a play in its entirety in a relaxed non-performance environment. We typically have food and drink - and there is often an active discussion of the play following its reading. We also sometimes explore the exercises in Uta Hagen's work, "A Challenge for the Actor." This is a great opportunity to meet other actors and sharpen your reading skills.

Upcoming plays/readings will include:

God of Carnage,
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,
Arsenic and Old Lace,
Angels in America parts 1 and 2,
Other Desert Cities,
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,
Beyond Therapy,
Much Ado About Nothing,
The Tempest, and
The Comedy of Errors.
