Meet the Apes

Theater of the Apes is an East Harlem-based company dedicated to presenting original, affordable, comic work better heeled producers daren't touch.


Dawn of Theater of the Apes:

Founded in the late 90s, the Apes managed just one credit - the original New York International Fringe Festival production of Urinetown: The Musical - prior to disappearing from view due to the exigencies of parenthood.

Return of the Theater of the Apes:

In 2017, the Apes reemerged. We are here for good. Good, cheap, oddball theater. Like:
