LAByrinth Theater Company
LAByrinth Theater Company is a non-profit, Off-Broadway theater company based in New York City.
An inclusive, multicultural ensemble of almost 100 established and emerging theater artists led by Artistic Directors Stephen Adly Guirgis, Mimi O'Donnell and Yul Vazquez, LAByrinth Theater Company encourages all members to write, act, direct and design, supporting multidisciplinary growth and exploration in the creation of new work. Over the last fifteen years, LAByrinth has developed hundreds of new plays and staged 44 productions. LAByrinth Theater Company is in residence at The Public Theater.
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." 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.
