A recent bit of praise from playwright Manuel Igrejas

"I did my play No Strings Attached as part of Stage Left Studio's Left Out Festival. We had such a good time in Cheryl King's enchanted cottage in the sky, we decided to do the show a few months later as a 4 week showcase. Stage Left Studio is the perfect venue for the intimate show.

Working with Cheryl was a wonderful festival/co-producing/rental experience, I highly recommend it and plan to do it again.  You get honesty, clarity, support and enthusiasm, all in one package. Cheryl is an artist and not just a landlord and it's a bonus to have her on your team with her unique blend of talents."

Cheryl King was recently named to Indie Theater Now's Hall of Fame

The next (and last for the summer) Forbidden Kiss LIVE will be July 17 at 8 pm

This once-a-month showcase earned Stage Left the title "New York's Best Sexy Theatre" from Village Voice.

Al Pesant at says about Cheryl King and Stage Left Studio, "Ms. King, by the way, owns and runs the marvelous Stage Left Studio Theatre, one of NYC’s true entertainment treasures. Her theatre has long been producing new, undiscovered talent of the very highest caliber."

Stage Left Studio is an innovative space with an age-old mission: to support the new work of burgeoning artists.

"Curator/Producer/Artistic Director Cheryl King is a passionate and dedicated professional who seeks to nurture exciting new works and the artists who create them. The salon atmosphere of the intimate space is one of its many charms. Unlike the commercial theatre scene in NY (where even the smallest spaces have lost their edgy charm), Stage Left retains its raw, gritty energy. This place is so exciting that it is hard to describe the eclectic mix. On any given night you may see a polished solo work, a showcase of raw, unedited originals, a staged reading of a campy musical, or even be lucky enough to catch FORBIDDEN KISS: the truly titillating erotica series and the only thing of its kind in NY. Ms. King is the doyenne of Stage Left and her nurturing passion is the foundation of the edgiest place in town. GO!" Tom Gualtieri, Drama-Desk nominated star of "That Play"
