About 5x5

What is 5X5?

The 5X5 Drama Series was founded in 2016 with the idea of bringing performances beyond the footlights of the theater and into non-traditional spaces like breweries, rooftops, apartments, taverns, and more to provide a unique immersive audience experience. This year we had over 500 submissions and narrowed it down to 5 beautiful plays. Each 90-minute  long performance will consist of 5 short plays, performed by 5 casts, throughout all 5 boroughs. Fulfilling one of our core beliefs of making theatre accessible to all, 5X5 brings the stage directly to the people. And best of all, tickets are available on a suggested donation basis.
Running Time: 90 minutes
