Prospect Theater Company is a non-profit organization founded in June 1998 by five graduates of Princeton University. Prospect's goal is to "connect communities of artists and audiences to each other and to theatrical history by re-interpreting classic plays and musicals, and to use these connections to collaboratively create new works."
