EMIR Productions NYC

The original campus of EMIR Productions LLC. Started in 2017 with just an idea and one show in mind, our founder, Rantea Emir Thompson, wanted to bring a new kind of theatre company to NYC; making sure inclusion, paid opportunities, and lifting spirits are number one priorities!

Why Are We Different?

NYC is where all of the professional theatre's live, but for people who cannot afford to pursue or are not given professional opportunities onstage or backstage, it can be a daunting task. EMIR Productions wants to bring the concept of community theatre together with a professional atmosphere; making sure we are inclusive and giving people a chance, while giving them an opportunity to be paid for their art!


Whether it is a new playwright or a show that has been on Broadway, we like to flip the script on how those shows have been done before. Sometimes, it takes one person to ask the hard question of "Why can't it be done this way?"
If the show has nothing to do with race or a specific culture, we like to stray away from the norms and open our audience to new possibilities!
