Stage to Screen NYC

Stage to Screen NYC Stage to Screen gives plays previously produced a life beyond the stage. Live theater only allows for a finite group of people to experience these great stories. By adapting our plays to film, a wider audience can experience them.

Stage to Screen gives plays previously produced in our annual SUMMER SHORTS, festival of new American short plays® (@SummerShortsNYC), "life beyond the final curtain™". Over the past 10 seasons, Throughline Artists’ annual SUMMER SHORTS festival of new American short plays has gathered over 65 unique dramatic works by some of the country’s top talent. Including Neil LaBute, Christopher Durang, Tina Howe, Warren Leight, Alexander Dinelaris, and the late William Inge. Live theater only allows for a finite group of people to experience these great stories. By adapting our plays to film, a wider audience can experience them. Our unique process of using live theater to developed content for the camera allows for a full rehearsal process and a public performance period. As a result the script is honed, actors deepen their understanding of character and the story is enriched for audiences as only the stage can provide. By offering funding through production grants, development and marketing support, it is our hope that production companies around the country will bring many of our short plays to the big and small screen. The demand for ‘small screen’ content is growing. Cable channels, streaming services, websites, and even airlines are actively seeking out short form content. We hope Stage to Screen can help fill those needs.

Series A is a NY Times Critics Pick!!! #SummerShortsNYC #ShortPlaysNYC #countdowntosummer #CriticsPick #SeriesA

"she [Melissa Ross] neatly captures the ebb and flow of a conversation — the passive-aggressive jabs, the bad-faith questioning, the illogical leaps, but also the underlying affection and trust earned over during a long relationship."

"Alan Zweibel supplies the sugary filling in the Series A sandwich with “Playing God,” a comic interlude in which the Supreme Being (Bill Buell) punishes a callow doctor (Dana Watkins) by taunting him into a game of squash"

“Acolyte,” which concludes Series A of 59E59 Theaters’ annual Summer Shorts mini-festival, is so tantalizing that you want to know more about what happened, yet it also works perfectly in 30 tight minutes"
