New York Theatre Workshop

Founded in 1979, New York Theatre Workshop is dedicated to ensuring the strong and necessary presence of the artist in our society. This mission is achieved through two distinct, yet equally important approaches: first through producing an annual season of shows in their 199-seat theatre in Manhattan’s East Village and second, by inviting theatre-makers of all stages to participate in activities that allow them to gain support for both themselves and their work.

This dual programming, on its stage and in its “Workshop,” allows NYTW to develop and produce theatrical experiences that reflect and respond to the world around us and energize the artists and audiences the company connects with each year.
