LAByrinth Theater Company is a non-profit, Off-Broadway theater company based in New York City. Led by Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Ortiz for many years,[1] its current artistic director is Mimi O'Donnell.[2] The New York Times described it in 2014 as "an ethnically diverse downtown troupe that has mounted several critically acclaimed new works".[3]

History[edit]

LAByrinth Theater Company was founded in 1992 by 13 actors looking for "a home where the group, for three hours each week, could engage in a variety of theatrical exercises designed to push each others’ limits and bind together into a tightly knit, uninhibited and impassioned ensemble – one in which each member is given the opportunity and support not only to act, but to write, direct, produce, sweep, paint, hang lights, etcetera."[4] This expansion of artists into the exploration of new aspects of theater remains one of the primary goals of Labyrinth, and the company is fostering a new generation of writers and directors who hail from acting backgrounds.[5]
