Since 1970, the Manhattan Theatre Club has incubated many of the greatest theatrical works of the 20th and 21st century, from Ain't Misbehavin' to Crimes of the Heart and Proof. However, none of these scripts sprung from a quest for fame and prestige. Rather, they were a result of MTC's passion for commissioning new work and nurturing fresh talent. This emphasis on the playwright has paid off, as Manhattan Theatre Club has grown from a modest Off-Off-Broadway showcase into a powerhouse theater organization that's racked up 19 Tony Awards, 6 Pulitzer Prizes, 32 Drama Desks, and 48 Obies.
