OnTheRoad Repertory Company was founded in 2012 by Artistic Director Alice Spivak, the renowned acting mentor and author of How to Rehearse When There is No Rehearsal - Acting & the Media. The company was founded in collaboration with her advanced professional acting students.
Our mission is to create an ensemble of players producing revivals and original works in New York City.

Television audiences saw her in Law and Order, Sex and the City, Law and Order CI, and as a regular performer on Sidney Lumet’s 100 Centre Street.
