New Plays at Hartford Stage

New Plays at Hartford Stage

Hartford Stage has a long-standing commitment to developing new plays and has produced over 70 world premieres in its first 50 years. Plays commissioned, developed, and produced by Hartford Stage have gone on to receive productions regionally and in New York–both on and off Broadway.  Recent world premieres include Steven Lutvak and Robert Freedman’s musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder (which was honored with four 2014 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Direction of a Musical by Darko Tresnjak); Daniel Beaty’s play with music, Breath and Imagination; Big Dance Theatre’s Man in a Case, a dance-theatre piece with Mikhail Baryshnikov; and Quiara Alegria Hudes’ Pulitzer Prize-winning Water by the Spoonful.
