Luna Stage was founded in 1992 by Jane Mandel and became an Equity Theater in 1995. For its first 18 years, the company made its home in Montclair, New Jersey, first in a small space on Walnut Street and then in a larger facility on Bloomfield Avenue. In the fall of 2010, Luna Stage moved to West Orange to join in a dynamic movement of revitalization and community engagement aimed at establishing the Valley Arts District of Orange and West Orange as a hub for entertainment and culture in the region. In 2013, after twenty years of leadership, Jane Mandel stepped down as Artistic Director and was succeeded by Cheryl Katz who had worked for the company since 2003, first as Director of Play Development and then as Associate Artistic Director. The mission of Luna Stage is to produce thought-provoking theatre that gives voice to emerging American playwrights and re-examines contemporary and classic plays that speak to our times. As producer, educator and innovator, Luna Stage is committed to collaborating with artists of multiple disciplines and partnering with our community to illuminate the diverse perspectives of our society.
