MAGIC Theatre

900 Fallon Street, Oakland 94607, California, United States

Business Details

Now celebrating its 50th year of continuous operation, Magic Theatre is dedicated to the cultivation of bold new plays, playwrights, and audiences – and to producing explosive, entertaining, and ideologically robust stories that ask substantive questions about our place in humanity.  Magic provides a nurturing yet rigorous artistic home where innovative writers can create a body of work. We believe that developing an evolved artistic vocabulary with the playwright at our side, over a long period of time, greatly improves a playwright’s chances to thrive.

From its earliest years Magic Theatre has contributed to the richness and relevance of the national theatrical canon. Magic’s impact on the field has resonated throughout the United States beginning in the 1970’s with Sam Shepard’s early Pulitzer and Obie-award winning plays to Luis Alfaro’s world premiere of Oedipus el Rey in 2010, Taylor Mac’s groundbreaking five hour epic The Lily’s Revenge in 2011, and Octavio Solis’s Se Llama Cristina in 2013. Under Loretta Greco’s direction, Magic is reviving and increasing playwright residencies and long-term artistic developmental efforts as it hones its focus on new play creation in concert with the playwright.

22 of the 25 new plays produced at Magic over the last five years have enjoyed extended life beyond its stage throughout the U.S. and abroad.
