ABOUT

• Beginning March 24TH 2020 (due to the pause in NYC), The Salon began presenting its readings online via ZOOM. If you would like to be on the email list, drop us a note (click the envelope above; top left of this page). STAY HEALTHY.

Born out of a desire for camaraderie and the need to practice our craft, The Lafayette Salon Series (est. 2009) was founded by Stewart Walker (born in Frankfurt, Germany), Jane Cortney (London, England) and Mac Brydon (San Diego, California). The three, colleagues and friends, set out to create an event where plays and screenplays are performed once a month.

Since its beginning in Greenwich Village, in the heart of New York City, The Salon has hosted unrehearsed readings from one hundred twenty five writers, from every decade since the eighteen twenties, and has used the professional talents of over two hundred eighty actors.

The Salon currently calls The Players Club in Gramercy home.
