"Look, I made a hat...where there never was a hat."
-From Sunday in the Park with George, by Sondheim & Lapine
Boomerang Theatre Company has been bringing NYC artists & audiences together for 24 years to witness the making of art. Through 64 productions - including over 150 free Shakespeare performances - over 34,000 audience members stood witness to our "making of a hat".
Boomerang invests in storytellers, who share their passions onstage in intimate settings. The result is a world-class communion of audience and artists, a magic that cannot be found anywhere else.
