About Working in the Theatre

Working in the Theatre is The Wing’s Emmy® Nominated documentary series produced to entertain audiences by revealing theatre’s inner-workings, profiling industry luminaries, and taking a closer look at unique stories that surround important work. We document conversations, narratives, technique, and history on film to excite and inform audiences about theatre, sharing and preserving knowledge of our industry. Spanning four decades of programming and featuring extraordinary work across the nation, Working in the Theatre is the most comprehensive theatre series to date.

The American Theatre Wing’s Working in the Theatre receives leadership support from The Dorothy Strelsin Foundation and is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. Working in the Theatre is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
