InterAct is committed to producing socially and politically relevant work for theater. The company's decision to award 20 new play commissions over six seasons is evidence of its commitment to new work, as is InterAct's founding membership in the National New Play Network, an alliance of nonprofit theaters that champions the development, production, and continued life of new plays. The Center has supported InterAct's strategic planning to build partnerships with local organizations that will enhance its impact, and helped it reimagine the Adrienne Theater—the venue where InterAct, alongside several other performing companies, makes its home. The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, given one of its earliest productions at InterAct, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
InterAct took the lead role in an effort to transform the Adrienne, a multi-tenant arts facility, as a regional hub for the development and production of new plays and theater. CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia, a consultancy firm with expertise in creative, co-working models for cultural organizations, facilitated a seven-month planning process with the building's landlord and other Adrienne tenants, such as PlayPenn and Philly Improv Theater, to arrive at a shared mission for all parties. InterAct also spearheaded efforts to redesign portions of the Adrienne by building a centralized box office and creating a more cohesive range of programming that includes all tenants. A national study of shared arts facilities inspired new ideas for collaborative promotional and fundraising efforts.
