Agency for the Performing Arts (also known as APA) is the fifth largest talent and literary agency in the US, with offices in Beverly Hills, New York, and Nashville. They represent actors, comedians, broadcasters, radio personalities, writers, directors, producers and musicians. They represent over 450 clients and staff around 60 agents. Technically, they are considered an upper mid-level agency because they do not "package" movies the way the Big Five (William Morris/Endeavor, ICM, Paradigm, UTA, and CAA) talent agencies do. They have separate theatrical, literary and concert departments.
