Our Story

Theater Garden, Ltd. is a Not-For-Profit 501(c) 3 company committed to the development of new works for new audiences. Our mission is to produce entertaining, educational theater that brings history to life for audiences of all ages.

Theater Garden, Ltd. began in October of 1999 as a means of producing Lady of Copper, the musical story of the Statue of Liberty and the immigrant experience. In the year 2000, we were very proud to have six paid bookings. Since then, Lady of Copper has been performed over 200 times and been seen by thousands of children and adults. It enjoyed off-Broadway runs at The Culture Project and The Cherry Lane Theater. The show has been featured in stories in the New York Times and Big Apple Parent and on the Metro Channel and NY1.

In addition to Lady of Copper, Theater Garden has added three more original shows to our repertoire:

  • Enough For All — The Musical Story of the First Shared Thanksgiving
  • First Lady — Eleanor Roosevelt and the Changing Role of Women in American History
  • The Road to Freedom — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement

Theater Garden has worked on our shows with over 35 actors, writers, directors and designers.
