It’s that time of year again! Love is in the air, the smell of chocolate and sweets permeates our favorite stores, and the annual LUV Short Play Festival hops back on stage to celebrate love in all its forms.
The Players Theatre Short Play & Musical Festival produces three – three week festivals – three times a year: Luv (February), NYC (June) and Boo! (October).
Submissions are gathered from all over the country with 15 short plays or musicals being selected by a panel of judges for each festival. Each week a winner – selected by audience vote – receives the honor of “Best of the Week” and $100 prize.
The shows are produced entirely by the playwright and their team and are presented at the Steve & Marie Sgouros Black Box Theatre – located on the 3rd floor of the historic Players Theatre in the heart of Greenwich Village – NYC.
This year’s love-themed short play and musical festival runs Feb 9 – 26, 2023. Thurs, Fri, & Sat 7pm, Sun 3pm. Don’t miss out on these original plays!
