About Manhattan Theatre Club

Established in 1970, the Manhattan Theatre Club has been the creative and artistic home for many gifted theatrical artists, producing works by established and emerging playwrights. The theatre produces works on Broadway out of the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (formerly the Biltmore Theatre) and off Broadway at the New York City Center complex. The Manhattan Theatre Club has around 20,000 subscribers and is committed to offering innovative work, encouraging theatrical talent, and educating.

The Paul A. Kaplan Theatre Management Program at the Manhattan Theatre Club is a full-time internship through which participants learn about theatre production. Positions are available in artistic production, business, casting, company management, education, Friedman Theatre, institutional giving, individual giving, literary, marketing, production management, and special events. Candidates may also apply for production assistant opportunities and should see the website for more details. Interns benefit from in-depth training, mentoring, and weekly educational seminars.


Open to undergraduates (sophomore year and above), graduate students, recent graduates, and mid-career applicants. Some previous administrative experience is preferred.
