Workshop Theater Company's mission is to provide a creative home for a diverse group of playwrights, directors and actors, to hone their talents and cultivate projects, from inspiration through finished production, while encouraging its audience to partner in developing new works. The theater company allows artists and audiences to explore new works through a range of programs: Sundays@Six Reading Series, Staged Reading Series, Play-in-Process (PIP) and Main Stage Showcase Productions.

The theater space is located near Penn Station. Other theater producers can rent its venues: the 65-seat Main Stage Theater, and the 33-flex-seating Jewel Box Theater. Some of the Midtown International Theatre Festival productions take place here.
