Our Mission

Established in 1999, the Boomerang Theatre Company is dedicated to producing new, classic and neglected plays that add to the vibrancy of the national theatre canon. We annually present original and re-imagined plays as both outdoor performances and indoors rotating repertory seasons. 

By employing an innovative philosophy and a pioneering spirit, Boomerang constantly expands the idea of what is possible for an Off-Off Broadway/Indie Theatre company. Through this unique combination of substance and form, we move our audience by creating for them a dialogue of culturally significant plays from diverse styles, genres, and periods.

Our History

The Boomerang Theatre Company has been successfully delivering critically acclaimed, daring theatre in New York City for nearly two decades. Boomerang is a strategic leader in the field of Indie Theater, bringing together creative artists and audiences to tell compelling stories and to take artistic risks. Boomerang takes pride in creating world class work that reflects the concerns, hopes and dreams of its audience.

 

Boomerang is committed to putting bold new work on stage, using a combination of dynamic new voices and reinvigorated classics. Boomerang’s seasons have included rotating repertory, world premiere plays, new musicals, play readings and music/theater mashup events. The company’s goal is to give the spotlight to a diverse group of voices and creators.

 

Boomerang’s recent work includes the premiere of the new musical LOVELESS TEXAS by Henry Aronson and Cailin Heffernan, the world premiere of Lauren Ferebee’s THE RECKLESS SEASON, the premiere of Johnna Adams’ LICKSPITTLES, BUTTONHOLERS AND DAMNED PERNICIOUS GO-BETWEENS along with revivals of Shakespeare’s LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST (in partnership with Bryant Park Shakespeare), A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM and CYMBELINE.

 

Currently Boomerang is celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2018 with a new outdoor production of TWELFTH NIGHT, a workshop of a new musical and a yearlong new play festival highlighting the development of twenty new works.
