Welcome to a new world of Gourmet Salon Shakespeare…
New Place Players combines immersive theater with exquisite dining to create an unforgettable experience. Whether for a corporate event, a charity benefit, or a private celebration at home, we perform full productions of Shakespeare as part of a feast of live music, gourmet food, and fine wine.
We are a traveling troupe of fifteen professional Equity actors and musicians dedicated to bringing Shakespeare directly to its audience. Teaming up with Master Chef Max Hansen (Thomas Keller protégé), we seek to recreate the intimate spectacle of a private Elizabethan feast.
Our critically acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by James Ortiz (The Woodsman) is currently available for booking. We perform throughout the Northeast Corridor in event spaces, restaurants, private homes, and Casa Duse, a historic 19th century townhouse in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

“The productions are a harmonious blend of music, lighting, theatre, food and drink, amounting to a communal atmosphere that harks back to the experience of catching a theatre performance in Elizabethan times…the New Place Players emphasize the sense of actor and audience sharing the same space, with only the subtlest of fourth-wall-breaking antics.”
