“The legal system can force open doors and sometimes even knock down walls, but it cannot build bridges.

That job belongs to you and me.” *

         ~ Thurgood Marshall, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court

*1992 Liberty Medal Acceptance Remarks. 

Justice and Mrs. Marshall were early residents of Morningside Gardens.

Theater plays a vital role in society, it affirms universal truths, it provides a mirror to see the truth about ourselves, 

and it inspires us to do better.

Since its founding in 1974, The Morningside Players has been recognized for artistic excellence and acknowledged

 for promoting community and engaging the richly diverse Morningside Heights neighborhood.
