About Fellowship for the Performing Arts
Founded by Artistic Director Max McLean, Fellowship for Performing Arts is a New York City-based 501(c)3 not-for-profit theatrical production company delivering provocative, entertaining theatre from a Christian worldview that is engaging to a diverse audience.
Recent New York productions include a four-month run of C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert at The Acorn Theatre on Theatre Row; a nine-month run of The Screwtape Letters at The Westside Theatre; and Martin Luther On Trial and The Great Divorce at the Pearl Theatre. FPA tours nationally and in the U.K. The national tour of The Screwtape Letters attracted 500,000 patrons.
FPA’s next production will be the first New York revival of William Nicholson’s Shadowlands at The Acorn Theatre in October 2017. Martin Luther on Trial will begin its national tour in Cleveland in September 2017.
“Fellowship for Performing Arts offers something that has been sorely missing from the New York theater scene for far too long: high-quality, challenging theater from a Christian perspective.”
