Founder and Artistic Director of Poor Richard's Players, Owner of The Playhouse.

It has been my lifelong dream to not only live a life full of theatre but to also operate a venue of my own - to provide a place for creatives to tell their stories, for onlookers to be taken out of themselves, to participate in important conversations, and to inspire young minds as I was once inspired by the theatre.

That dream has become a reality!  But, in order to continue our ongoing service to our community, we need help from theatre lovers like you.

After nearly ten years of producing award winning and critically acclaimed theatre across the Vegas Valley, Poor Richard's Players finally have a permanent home at The Playhouse (528 S Decatur Blvd.). The Playhouse is a 5,000 square foot, black box venue with a fully modular stage, seating for 100+ patrons, tech booth, dressing rooms, scene shop, and administrative office.  The Playhouse is finally reopening and is prepping the following productions:

AN ILIAD by Lisa Peterson and David O'Hare  – August

MARK TWAIN'S THE DIARIES OF ADAM AND EVE adapted for the stage by Maxim Lardent – September

HAMLET by William Shakespeare – TBA

Additionally, The Playhouse is eager to welcome other local theatre troupes to tell their stories within.  We aim to give storytellers without a home a stage with which to continue developing the theatre arts in Las Vegas.

And finally, filling out the schedule are audience favorites and ongoing series such as SHOELACES IN PARIS and BROADWAY NERDS, as well as great annual events like the VEGAS IMPROV FESTIVAL.

A 501(c)3, Non-Profit - Founded in 2011 by Benjamin Loewy, Maxim Lardent and Lysander Abadia; Poor Richard's Players have been producing award-winning theatre all over the Vegas valley. They have been recognized as "Best of Las Vegas" by the Las Vegas Review Journal, The Las Vegas Weekly, and City Life Magazine. Despite their recent success with large scale musicals and their critically acclaimed dramatic productions, PRP is probably best known for their unique brand of comedic works. Their commendations include ten Valley Theatre Awards (including two "Best Production" awards) and six "Best of Fringe" awards at the Las Vegas Fringe Festival. They continue to push the boundaries of local theatre; not only as a source of entertainment but also as a catalyst for open communication about the way we think and feel, love and hate, laugh and cry. #ChallengeEachOther
