Ensemble Studio Theatre

Theater Hell's Kitchen
5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)
Though this upstairs space seems small, its impact is disproportionately large, as it supports a large membership of playwrights who contribute to the EST Marathon of One-Act Plays, as well as other short and full-length projects. The much-missed founder Curt Dempster's mission was to develop American writing talent, so keep an eye on the under-30 playwright's group Youngblood and Going to the River, which provides a forum for female playwrights of color.
