The CRY HAVOC Company

The CRY HAVOC Company is a not-for-profit theater in New York City committed to creating raw, provocative, and humane theater by approaching all plays – both comedy and drama – as conflicts between individuals struggling to do what each desperately believes is right.

Since its founding in 1997, CRY HAVOC has developed more than 450 new plays, screenplays, and musicals through its active Workshop, Lab, and Studio programs. In that time, CRY HAVOC has also brought more than 25 of these projects to the New York stage, including the world premieres of more than a dozen new plays. Projects developed with CRY HAVOC have also been published, made into award-winning films, and produced in major venues in New York, across the United States, and on every continent around the world.

CRY HAVOC is also committed to supporting the development of the next generation of theater artists – with its slate of classes, free early career seminars, and its highly sought-after Apprentice Program. Through its Open Workshop program and its bi-weekly podcast, CRY HAVOC also seeks to elucidate the theater-making process for theater-goers by offering a glimpse into parts of the development and rehearsal process that audiences rarely get to see.

Led by Artistic Director Kitt Lavoie, Managing Director Jerzy Gwiazdowski, and the members of the CRY HAVOC Resident Company, the CRY HAVOC artistic community is comprised of more than 250 actors, writers, directors, and designers at all levels of training and professional advancement – from college students to seasoned Broadway professionals.
