About

New York Theatre Workshop:



At New York Theatre Workshop, we work relentlessly to empower

visionary theatre‐makers and bring their work to adventurous audiences through

productions, artist workshops and education and community engagement programs.

We’re proud to be a home base for many of the most significant theatre‐makers

of our time, nurturing groundbreaking writers like Nathan Alan Davis and Celine

Song alongside powerhouse playwrights like Amy Herzog and Ayad Akhtar. From

Rachel Chavkin and Lileana Blain‐Cruz to Whitney White and Rubén Polendo, we

empower inimitable auteur‐directors and give invaluable support to tremendous

talents in the earliest days of their careers. We’ve maintained decades‐long

relationships with legendary theatre‐makers like Will Power, Ivo van Hove, Dael

Orlandersmith, and Caryl Churchill, who have shaped our very understanding of

what theatre can be.



 



Since

our founding in 1979, we've produced over 150 fully‐realized productions

including Jonathan Larson's Rent; Tony Kushner's Homebody/Kabul;

Doug Wright's Quills; Claudia Shear's Dirty Blonde; Rick Elice’s Peter

and the Starcatcher; Glen Hansard, Markéta Irglová and Enda Walsh’s Once;

and David Bowie and Enda Walsh’s Lazarus. Enabling our artists to push

boundaries generates work like Nathan Alan Davis’s Nat Turner in Jerusalem,

Anaïs Michell’s Hadestown, Mfoniso Udofia’s Ufot Family Cycle,

Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me, Jeremy O. Harris’s Slave

Play, Kristina Wong's Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord and Moisés

Kaufman and Amanda Gronich’s Here There Are Blueberries. NYTW

productions have received a Pulitzer Prize, 25 Tony Awards, 2 Grammy Awards and

numerous Obie, Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Awards. 



 



But that’s not what we’re proudest of.

We take the greatest satisfaction from the community we’ve built, and the

perspective‐shifting experiences we’ve delivered along the way. We think that

theatre can bring people together, change the conversation, and have a profound

impact. We feel fortunate to get to support it. If that sounds like something

you’re interested in, we’d love to meet you.
