What are the 2020/21 season productions?

While the timeline for resuming in-person performances in New York City remains uncertain, we believe great work is still possible! We’ve engaged a group of extraordinary Artistic Instigators to create and develop new work. Some events will be exclusively virtual experiences while others may take place in person—when it is possible to do so with appropriate safety measures. In addition to attending events, NYTW Members and Repeat Defenders will have a front-row seat to the unfolding of this experiment with work-in-process showings and behind-the-scenes conversations with artists.

Who are the Artistic Instigators?

Ayad Akhtar, Clare Barron, Lileana Blain-Cruz, David Cale, Sean Carvajal, Victor I. Cazares, Rebecca Frecknall, Sam Gold, Aleshea Harris, Jeremy O. Harris, Modesto Flako Jimenez, Martyna Majok, Denis O’Hare, Lisa Peterson, Dael Orlandersmith, Rubén Polendo, Martha Redbone, Tina Satter, Geoff Sobelle, Celine Song, Theater Mitu, Aaron Whitby, Whitney White, Kristina Wong and Doug Wright.

These artists have been engaged to imagine work in our present moment that creates community within the given circumstances of social distancing, celebrates the liveness that is inherent in a theatrical experience, and examines the relationship between theatre, distance, and technology. 

What is the performance schedule?

We’re not sure yet! We’ve engaged the Artistic Instigators to begin dreaming and exploring. Members will receive regular email updates throughout the season including information about performances and special events.

How do I get access to my events?

Virtual events will have special access codes that grant exclusive online access to each member. Access codes are often one-time use.

For in-person events, we expect to distribute e-tickets to be scanned at the entrance along with increased safety procedures following public health guidelines.

Can I have multiple memberships?

Each customer is limited to one membership. Every member must have a unique email address to access your account and sign up for virtual events.

If you normally have two memberships and you still want to have two tickets for events, we’d recommend the Level 3 membership.

If you normally arrange for a group of three or more people, you’ll each want your own membership so you can access virtual programming while you shelter separately. Think of it like a yoga class—you attend together, but you sign in separately.

If you normally purchase memberships for other people, you’re still welcome to do that, you’ll just need an account for each person you want to “gift” a membership to. Our box office team is happy to help you set up accounts or answer questions!
