On Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 6:30pm New York Theatre Workshop hosted a special performance of OTHELLO. Proceeds from the evening went to benefit NYTW’s education and engagement programming across the 2016/17 season, providing thousands of students, teens, artists, and local residents access to some of the most exciting new voices and leading theatre artists of our time.

All tickets to the benefit performance included a tax-deductible contribution. At the $1,500 level, goods and services are valued at $225. At the $2,500 level, goods and services are valued at $500.
