The History of Casebook

It’s the best time of year – Casebook season! If you don’t already know about Casebook, you’re in luck – because this post is all about it!

Casebook is one of our show-specific education offerings. Through Casebook, audience members are given a behind-the-scenes look at how a production comes together at NYTW. NYTW designates one show per season as a case study and hosts a 7-week class designed to provide theatre lovers with a true insider’s view of the development process, including insights into budgeting, artistic and design decisions, and how a show might change from the final dress rehearsal to opening night.
