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 Celine Song and Nathan Alan Davis alongside powerhouse playwrights like Amy Herzog and Ayad Akhtar. From Rachel Chavkin and Lileana Blain-Cruz to Whitney White and Sam Gold, 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 Anaïs Mitchell's Hadestown, Mfoniso Udofia's Ufot Family Cycle, Heidi Schreck's What the Constitution Means to Me, and Jeremy O. Harris's Slave Play. 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. Even during a global pandemic, our community has continued to deepen existing connections and expand into new ones. From calls to check in on each other to grants for our artists to brand new education programs, our staff, trustees, artists, and audiences have shared in the power of theatrical experiences that bring people together, change the conversation, and have a profound impact. We feel fortunate to get to support that. If that sounds like something you're interested in too, we'd love to meet you.
