Axial Theater is a twenty-three year old ensemble based not-for-profit institution dedicated to supporting the professional development of playwrights and actors mainly based in the Westchester area. We focus on presenting theatrical experiences with a social impact or work that allows our artists to expand in their craft.
"Mr. Meyer has worked with me… and made an invaluable contribution through his perceptive analysis of text and performance. Howard has a strong talent and considerable skill... His vision of theatre, both as a vehicle of personal truth as well as moral force in the community is one that I completely identify with."
- Athol Fugard, Tony Award winning Playwright on Axial Founder and board President, Howard Meyer
Howard Meyer's Acting Program, an extension of Axial Theatre, offers training for actors and playwrights at all levels of experience.
The guiding principle of this Program is to foster truth in creative expression in a supportive environment committed to individualized attention.
We also provide specialized workshops focusing on growing the business acumen awareness of our students and local playwrights.

"...The workshop was just spot on.. I took away some clear, simple actions and next steps.. the strategic aspect was very grounded and realistic though easy to apply with some pre-planning, and a lovely spreadsheet!" Jacqueline R Bhavaraju
