New York Theatre Workshop
Out of continued concern for the health and safety of our audiences, artists and staff, NYTW will not return to public events in the 2019/20 season. We have a wonderful mostly virtual season for 2020/2021, featuring work from 30+ artists responding to the political, cultural, and social zeitgeist and innovating new ways to connecting to other human beings. As a member of the NYTW Education and Engagement team, I'm happy to say we have expanded our community programs nationwide and have continued fostering programs with amazing local organizations, such as People's Theatre Project.
