Box Wine Theatre produces plays, musicals, and festivals in New York City with the goal to prioritize artistic innovation in place of a high budget to bring meaningful productions to life. It is our belief that human nature can be beautiful in its flaws and we present programming that inspires, incites, and challenges our audience to create dialogue and question societal norms.
Box Wine Theatre was co-founded as a Twin Cities-based theatre company by Adam Sharp and Bethany Sharp. The name Box Wine Theatre was chosen playfully stating, “We’re cheap and we get the job done.” But in earnest, we sincerely hold the belief that the artist’s voice should outweigh extravagance and spectacle.
After six seasons in Minnesota, Box Wine Theatre moved to New York City along with its co-founders. Box Wine’s inaugural New York Production was our fifth installment of Raucous Caucus, our annual political play festival.
Bethany is co-founder and Producing Artistic Director of Box Wine Theatre. She is pursuing her MFA in Theatre Management & Producing at Columbia University School of the Arts and holds a Bachelor’s in Theatre Performance from Southwestern College. A producer, director, designer, and performer, Bethany also enjoys writing and continuing to learn from the amazing talent that NYC has to offer.
Adam is co-founder and Associate Artistic Director of Box Wine Theatre. He is a writer, director, and performer and received his MFA in Dramatic Writing at NYU Tisch School of the Arts as well as his Bachelor’s degree is in English with a Theatre minor from Southwestern College. Adam is a member of the Dramatists Guild and Screen Actors Guild. Much of Adam’s writing focuses on social and political issues including the American economy, education, healthcare, and gun control.
Twin Cities Company Members
We could not have accomplished our first six seasons in Minnesota without the Box Wine Theatre company members with whom we worked from 2008-2014. Box Wine cannot thank these inspiring and eclectic artists enough for their talent, drive, and dedication.
