The Rehearsal Club
Inc. 2019



​​​​​​​​​​​"Dedicated to telling the story of The Rehearsal Club, to preserving its
legacy and to inspire and support future generations of aspiring young artists."


Welcome to the Rehearsal Club  Legend!

Ours is a world gone by, and during this current COVID-19 crisis, those simplier times live on in the hearts of the many women who were lucky enough to walk up these stairs.  We send our collective blessings to those sisters and friends in our circle of life today.

As you stroll through our site, you will discover more about the unique women who lived in the safe haven on West 53rd Street, immortalized in Stage Door - who we were then, who we are now, and where we are headed. 
"It saved my life!"
 The Rehearsal Club alumnae were brought together in 2006 by Emeritus Founder, Kathleen Conry ,  Our small group has grown exponentially, and stars like
Carol Burnett Blythe Danner and Kim Cattrall  have stepped up in
support of our  projects designed to fulfill our mission:

"Dedicated to telling the story of The Rehearsal Club, to preserving its legacy and inspire and support future generations of aspiring young artists." 
"It was a place like no other"

Launching in 2020

We strive to be your hub for help

The Rehearsal Club was more than an affordable safe haven.  It was a community of like-minded, supportive women who seek to "inspire the next generation" - you! 

Active Union members, star alums archived at The Paley, historical roots at the Little Church Around the Corner and many, many more tentacles of support and creativity to whom all our women are forever grateful. 
RC Key Winner(s), productions of Stage Door and other ways we support and honor the next generation.

 ​​"I hope there will someday be a place like the Rehearsal Club again!"
