New Line Theatre was created in 1991 to involve the people of the St. Louis region in the creation and exploration of provocative, alternative works of musical theatre -- daring, muscular, adult theatre about politics, religion, race, sex, violence, the media, and other contemporary issues. New Line produces
  • concept musicals like Company, Assassins, Chicago, Sunday in the Park with George, and Cabaret
  • abstract musicals like Hair, Jacques Brel, and Songs for a New World
  • absurdist musicals like Reefer Madness, Attempting the Absurd, The Cradle Will Rock, and Anyone Can Whistle
  • important (though sometimes under-appreciated) mainstream works whose original depth and innovation is now largely ignored, like Man of La Mancha, Camelot, Pippin, Sweeney Todd, and Into the Woods
  • and brilliant, lesser known Broadway and off Broadway shows like Floyd Collins, A New Brain, March of the Falsettos, Passion, The Robber Bridegroom, The Nervous Set, and Bat Boy.
