Past Resident

Stephen Chan

Stephen was born in Methuen, Massachusetts and raised in the neighboring town of Andover until college. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University, he spent the next four years professionally choreographing and teaching dance in Boston and New York for studios and theaters, until fully dedicating his artistic efforts towards playwriting in 2015.

An alum of HB Studio in the West Village and a selected playwright resident for The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow and Arts Letters & Numbers, most of Stephen’s works can be found in readings and staged readings in the cultural melting pot of New York City. His latest production was at Manhattan Repertory Theatre, debuting his play “Et tu, Padre?”.

Internalizing his father’s words to ‘create jobs - not take them away’, Stephen considers himself to be an everlasting ally to artists of all trades. When not crafting and producing new works of his for the stage, Stephen works as a product manager for Artsy, building products to help art collectors discovery and evaluate art they love. He is passionate about making art as accessible as music. Stephen also consults part-time for Network of Ensemble Theaters, helping the NET team tell compelling stories with data.
