Larson Lab

Born out of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation’s challenge grant and created in 2001, the Jonathan Larson Lab is a memorial to the creator of Rent that gives emerging and established theatre artists essential resources, a nurturing creative environment and an open canvas for exploring their ideas and developing their work.

The Larson Lab studio augments our Mondays @ 3 reading series to provide resources to artists as they develop work. Larson Labs projects are tailored to each specific project, giving it the time and space it needs to grow.

Select past Larson Lab projects include Sibyl Kempson’s Kyckling and Screaming, Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen’s Aftermath, Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare’s An Iliad and The Good Book, Will Power’s The Seven, Najla Said’s Palestine, Kate Moira Ryan and Linda Chapman’s The Beebo Brinker Chronicles, Janine Nabers and Sharon Kenny’s Mrs. Hughes, Anaïs Mitchell’s Hadestown and the Process in Performance conversation series.
