The New York Times says PTP/NYC “stands out amid the summer season’s fluff and fringiness as one to turn to for serious work” and The New Yorker calls the company’s work “daring and provocative.” The Village Voice states, “Every July, PTP/NYC presents a season of serious drama, a powerful burst of counter-programming to New York’s summer silliness. Since PTP moved to New York in 2007, its program at Atlantic Stage 2 has become one of the grounding moments of this city’s theater scene, with the ensemble focusing on stories of sociopolitical struggle—always thorny epics, always rich with language.” Huffington Post says, “Potomac Theatre Project bring intelligent, beautifully directed and performed fare to New York and we are so much luckier for it.” One Magazine states, “PTP/NYC are an extraordinary company. They choose powerful, thought-provoking work, and their actors, directors and technicians work together in such a seamless way, there are no chinks in this armor. PTP/NYC is necessary theatre, right here, right now.”
The Atlantic Stage 2 is accessible from the A, C, E, L trains to 14 St./8 Ave. or the 1, 2, 3 trains to 14 St.
