My mission: to create entertaining theater that uplifts and illuminates the human spirit.

MARC ACITO is the book writer of the musical Allegiance, opening Nov 8, 2015, at the Longacre Theater on Broadway.  Allegiance  won the Craig Noel Award for Outstanding New Musical for its run at the Old Globe.

He won the Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play with his comedy Birds of a Feather, which has received six other productions. Recently he wrote the concert adaptation of Lerner & Loewe's 1951 classic Paint Your Wagon for City Center's Encores series. He also wrote the book to A Room with a View, which played at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle and the Old Globe in San Diego.

Marc's one-man musical adaptation of his award-winning novel How I Paid for College debuted at the Hub Theater (the novel won the Ken Kesey Award for Fiction, was a NY Times Editors' Choice, and spawned a sequel, Attack of the Theater People).

Other projects in development include Chasing Rainbows, a musical based on the adolescence of Judy Garland, which has its world premiere November 27, 2015 at Flatrock Playhouse; and Relativity, a new play about the relationship between Albert Einstein and Marian Anderson. He recently became the first writer to receive two NAMT grants in one year.

Now a regular contributor to Playbill, Marc recorded numerous commentaries for the 12 million listeners of NPR’s All Things Considered. He teaches Story Structure to writers of all mediums at NYU.
