The Players, one of the great partners of the Albanian Institute, is a private iconic theatre and National Historic Landmark in New York City's Gramercy District.

“We do not mingle enough with minds that influence the world,” said Edwin Booth, the greatest American actor of his time. So in 1888, he turned to Mark Twain, General William Tecumseh Sherman and 13 other illustrious men-of-the-day to remedy this situation, and together they founded The Players for the “promotion of social intercourse between the representative members of the dramatic profession and the kindred professions of literature, painting, sculpture and music, and the patrons of the arts…”

Here in The Alcove room are seen Dino Korca in conversation with a patron, and Ilir Ikonomi (sitting left), September 30, 2015.
