The Workshop Theater
The Workshop Theater is a collective, where over 150 professional artists - playwrights, actors, directors, stage managers and technicians - work together to create new plays.
Richard Kent Green joined the company in the fall of 2002. He has since produced, directed, designed and/or acted in over a hundred plays, events or readings. Richard produced the first Main Stage production in The Worksghop's current space - From the Top, by Emmy-Award-winning writer Scott C. Sickles. He co-produced and co-hosted (and sang, with his ukulele, in) a gala fundraiser at the Zipper Factory starring Bill Irwin and members of both the original and revival casts of HAIR! He was the musical director and half of the band for Allen Knee's Jazz Age, which moved to Off-B'way. He produced Natalie Mosco's A Brush with Georgia O'Keeffe, which was invited to perform at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washigton D.C., a performance he assisted Robert Kalfin in staging and for which he created an impromptu, on-the-spot lighting design. Richard has appeared in more readings and productions by internationally-produced playwright - and Workshop colleague - Rich Orloff, than he can count. His most recent projects on the Workshop's Main Stage, the musicals Life on the Mississippi (as John Malloy) and A Christmas Carol (as Marley, Christmas Present) were nominated by the New York Innovative Theater Awards (NYITA) for Outstanding Musical Production. His lighting deisgn for Poe Times Two was nominated by NYITA. His most recent role in a Workshop production, Jimmy Whyte in Parish Dunkeld by award-winning playwright Mark Leowenstern, was four-years in development at both The Workshop Theater and the Playwrights and Directors Workshop at The Actors Studio. He appears in Off-Off Kilter, a web series based upon the goings on at The Workshop. Richard is currently developing his own first full-length play: Snap, Crackle...
