Audible Theater makes outstanding performances and powerful storytelling available to millions of people all over the world. Led by Kate Navin (Artistic Producer for Audible Theater), Audible has produced shows including Girls & Boys with Carey Mulligan, The Half-Life of Marie Curie with Kate Mulgrew, Harry Clarke starring Billy Crudup, Billy Crystal’s Have A Nice Day with Annette Bening and Kevin Kline, the revival of Aasif Mandvi’s Sakina’s Restaurant, and many others at the Minetta Lane Theatre in New York City, Audible's creative home for live performances in New York. Audible hosts and produces a wide variety of live performances at the Minetta Lane including dramatic plays, comedic shows, engaging panel discussions, and more, with Audible members receiving exclusive access to discounted tickets and related audio content.

Audible launched its theater initiative in 2017 with the goal of democratizing theatrical performance and increasing access to exceptional writers and performers via language-driven storytelling on stage and in audio. Audible Theater productions take several forms:

  --  Some performances are recorded live during a traditional physical run at the Minetta Lane.

  --  For other performances, artists conclude their on-stage run, then go into the recording booth at Audible’s state-of-the-art studio facility in Newark, NJ.

  --  Still other performances are released straight to listeners’ ears.

Audible was co-producer for the Broadway transfer of the Tony Award-nominated Latin History for Morons written by and starring John Leguizamo and for the Tony Award-nominated Sea Wall /A Life starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge. Other projects have included the release of John Lithgow’s Stories By Heart, Judith Light’s All The Ways To Say I Love You, Sharon Washington’s Feeding The Dragon, and many more.

Since June 2017, Audible has commissioned 40 theater playwrights to receive support from its $5 million Emerging Playwrights Fund dedicated to developing innovative English-language works from around the globe. The $5 million fund enables the creation of original plays driven by language and voice, keeping with Audible’s core commitment to elevating listening experiences through powerful performances and extraordinary vocal storytelling. Dedicated to commissioning, developing, and producing work that reflects the diversity of both Audible members and our world, Audible is committed to granting at least 50% of Emerging Playwright commissions to artists of color and women.
