THINK BEYOND THE BLACK BOX

For more than 25 years Renaissance Theaterworks (RTW) has been a local leader in providing opportunities for women theater artists both onstage and off.

Since 1993, RTW has mounted over 100 full productions and staged-readings. Among these are nine original works by Wisconsin playwrights, seven World Premieres and one North American Premiere. We have told many women’s stories and provided opportunities for over 700 theater professionals; 75% of these have been women.

Today RTW remains Milwaukee’s only women-founded, women-run professional theater company dedicated to improving gender parity. Our mission: Dedicated to promoting the work of women onstage and off, Renaissance Theaterworks creates moving theater that connects with our shared sense of being human. We produce intimate, profound theater in the Broadway Theatre Center's Studio Black Box Theatre. We will begin performing in Next Act Theatre's space at 255 S Water Street in Fall 2020.

Think beyond the black box to the bright future of Renaissance Theaterworks as we embrace what's ahead in our 27th season of "theater by women, for everyone." Find a performance here.
