Our artists, audiences and patrons continue to be extremely generous with their time, donations and support of The Ensemble Studio Theatre.

This holiday season, we'd like to give back by gathering canned goods to donate to the the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry right in Hell's Kitchen on 51st Street! 

Last year we donated over 150 canned goods!  



Day in and day out, they're lurking in the lobby of EST...

They got you tipsy at the Asking For Trouble concession stand. And on Tuesdays and Thursdays, if you play your cards right, you may catch them taking out your trash!

Who are they?

The EST 2014 Fall Interns of course!

You may have noticed, our Ensemble Studio Theatre blue square is starting to look a bit different these days.  We took a look at the logo we've had for the past few decades, and decided to see if it could better reflect what makes us unique as a company, without losing it's familiar feel. 

Working with WellNow Designs, the whole EST team got together over the summer to discuss what this theater really is and what that means to all of us.  We came up with three parts:

For seven years, Ensemble Artist Debargo Sanyal has seen the development and evolution of the beautifully complex character, Indira. His career as an actor is extensive (acting opposite of Robert De Niro is no small feat), and Debargo has given full life to his character in When January Feels Like Summer.  He has graciously described his journey with this marvelous play. 


After the success of WJFLS, how does it feel to have the play come back for another New York run?
