Come on in and learn more about us.  We've been going places for more than 40 years!  Starting out from our home base in the Bronx, we have performed in neighborhoods from East Harlem to Las Vegas on stages from Lincoln Hospital to Lincoln Center... for spectators ranging from youthful offenders in detention centers to union delegates in convention centers.  And along the way, we have demonstrated that good theater and video with a social/political edge is very much alive and in demand by contemporary audiences....

CONFLICT RESOLUTION SKILLS & PEER-MEDIATION TRAINING
Mass Transit Street Theater & Video (MTSTV) is a Bronx-based theater known nationally for a dynamic mix of storytelling, song, dance, and film that entertains and provokes thought about the issues that touch our lives. The company’s original plays – for example, HOUSE ON MAYHEM STREET, HOME FREE, ONCE UPON A BUS, OVERTIME, and UNDER OUR SKIN – explore the contemporary issues of urban life, the value of diversity, and visions of what could be if we learn to work together. Following the show, actors and the audience join in a lively discussion of the play and the questions it raises.

Since 2007, Mass Transit has been offering original plays, films and workshops primarily to young people in schools and community centers. Through film festivals, screenings, mediation trainings and plays we are promoting emotional, economic and environmental literacy in schools and neighborhoods throughout the city.
