La MaMa

Ellen Stewart originally founded the La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club as a venue to develop and present new performance work. Playwrights, composers, poets, musicians and dancers have all been able to express themselves during the almost fifty years the theatre has resided in the East Village. This creative and nurturing environment has brought artists from all over the world, while also taking La Mama’s resident companies everywhere from the Ukraine to Colombia.
