Theatre for a New Audience

Theatre for a New Audience is dedicated to the language and ideas of writers: to a dialogue between Shakespeare and a provocative range of classical and contemporary playwrights. The Theatre has attracted some of the world’s most talented and sought-after artists. At the same time, the Theatre has provided important developmental opportunities for some of today’s most promising artists. The Theatre also has developed strong partnerships with outstanding presenters and regional theatres in the US and abroad, extending the reach of its work as well as its resources. In October 2013, it opened its first home after over thirty years of itinerancy, a 299-seat theatre in the Brooklyn Cultural District.
