Founded by artistic director Kitt Lavoie, the not-for-profit company has long believed in an audience’s participation in the creative process, using public workshops and open rehearsals as key elements in a show’s development.
Since the company was founded in 1997, it has produced dozens of works, many of which have been performed on New York stages. Plays developed by Cry Havoc have gone on to be produced by Ensemble Studio Theatre, The Players, Samuel French New Play Festival and The Actors Studio, among others.
Cry Havoc Resident Company member William Jackson Harper can currently be seen onstage in Goodbye, Cruel World at the ArcLight Theater, and member Jane Pfitsch made her Broadway debut as Amy in the 2006 revival of Company.
