Welcome to the NYTW Blog—a resource for behind-the-scenes insights on our productions, share-outs from the classroom penned by teaching artists, community partner spotlights, and a peek behind the curtain to see how work gets made at NYTW.
Many of you took the time to tell us “What the Workshop Means to Me” at the end of 2020 and it lifted our spirits and reminded us of the incredible community that surrounds us. As we close out this unprecedented season, we asked the staff to join us in letting you know What YOU Mean to the Workshop!
The show must go on – but you’ll need to follow some guidelines! Making live theatre during a global pandemic has come with its own unique set of challenges, the most important of which is ensuring the safety of everyone involved; from actors, creatives, and production staff to the audience members. THE NETWORK talks with several individuals, including NYTW Production Manager Hilary Luong, to better understand this new layer of logistics and protocols involved in creating live theatre, as well as the new role of the COVID-19 compliance officer.
Want to nail your next audition? Wonder what the person sitting on the other side of that table looks for? NYTW’s Casting Director, Taylor Williams, chatted with BACKSTAGE about the tips and tricks of the audition process, and why she is always on the lookout for new talent.
