???? ???? ??????? was founded as a community based creative outlet in New York City’s Chinatown. In its 52nd year, The Players is the only Cantonese-speaking theater group in the city, and one of the few in the country, whose mission is to produce new stage work in Chinese and English and to introduce new generations to the cultural classics from the past. The Players’ collaborative, resourceful style has become its signature trademarks. The productions have received local accolades, have a loyal audience and encourage a sense of community. Just as the outreach is vital, The Players provide a nurturing, constructive environment for artists, actors and designers to hone their craft, and for some an opportunity to dabble in the arts.
