New York Theatre Workshop empowers visionary theatre-makers and brings their work to adventurous audiences through productions, artist workshops and educational programs. We’ve mounted over 150 productions from artists whose work has shaped our very idea of what theatre can be, including Rent, Once and Peter and the Starcatcher, eight collaborations with Caryl Churchill, and eight acclaimed productions with director Ivo van Hove including David Bowie & Enda Walsh’s Lazarus. NYTW’s productions have received a Pulitzer Prize, 25 Tony Awards, 2 Grammy Awards and assorted Obie, Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Awards.
We are excited to share the many education and engagement opportunities at the workshop! Speak directly with NYTW staff to learn more about upcoming educational workshops, networking events, open salons, upcoming productions, and our For the Culture series.
Founded in 1979 and incorporated in 1982, New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) is committed to the development of innovative theatre by supporting theatre artists at all stages of their careers, providing an environment where work can be created free from the artistic compromise and forbidding financial demands often associated with commercial ventures.
New York Theatre Workshop offers many opportunities for artists to exhibit and produce work. NYTW offers both an artistic and administrative fellowships for those interested in working in the theatre world. They offer workshops and master classes for members of the public and artists. NYTW offers senior and youth programs through community workshops, after school programs, and senior centers. New York Theatre workshops also offers access to their space through “Next Door at NYTW.” This initiative provides each project with subsidized resources and space for development and performance in the Fourth Street Theatre.
