Our Mission Statement:
LungTree Productions was established in order to showcase talented actors and theatre artists in high quality Off-Off Broadway Theater. The company serves as a launching pad for its artists’ careers as well as delivering relevant, stimulating, and affordable theater to its audiences. It is difficult for many New York actors to be seen in plays where they can be proud of both the production quality and their own artistic work. Every aspiring New York actor has had casting directors and agents say something along the lines of, “Let us know when you’re in something we can see, just make sure it’s good and not wasting our time.” LungTree Productions will not waste their time. The company collaborates with some of the most respected people in the theatre and film community in order to guarantee strong artistic work that will engage general theater audiences, as well as perk the interests of industry professionals.
Behind the name "LungTree"
A tree survives only with a strong root system and by absorbing the energy from the sun. Truthful performances from actors require this same delicate balance of being grounded while still taking in the energy around them. Our sun is the energy from the other actors on stage and our breath is what grounds us.
