New York Theatre Workshop’s Core Values are to inspire deeper understanding, welcome learning and growth, to celebrate community, and to live its values.

Through our For The Culture Series (FTC), NYTW seeks to bridge the gap between the world we know and the world we are actively striving to build – where we harness the power of theatre to deepen human connections by learning and growing from the lived experiences of each other; connect through art, shared customs, traditions and heritage(s); and where we amplify artists and work by traditionally underrepresented groups or individuals, creating access to the Workshop for historically marginalized communities in order to build and sustain authentic relationships with our fellow community members and theatergoers.


What is FTC?

An ongoing affinity night engagement series centered around the themes and communities reflected in each NYTW show.

What is the purpose and desired outcome of FTC?

FTC will act as an umbrella for NYTW’s Innovators Program (e.g. theatre influencers, social influencers, NYTW highly engaged community members, fans of a particular show or artist, young urban professionals, etc.) while also supporting the Workshop’s strategic outreach efforts to engage diverse audiences who are most often underrepresented in the Off-Broadway theatre space
