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.
Rehearsals are underway for The Refuge Plays, an epic tale that follows one black family over 70 years. This also marks the first show in the 2023/24 season, which is the first season programmed by new NYTW Artistic Director, Patricia McGregor. The show also marks the return to the Workshop for NYTW Usual Suspect and former 2050 Artistic Fellow Nathan Alan Davis.
“When I dreamed of what this job would be, I visioned being able to say yes to audacious and impactful artists like Hansol Jung, Nathan Alan Davis, Mona Pirnot and Moisés Kaufman’s Tectonic Theater Project company. I’m exhilarated by the range of their work that’s simultaneously intimate and epic, rigorous and filled with love. I am humbled to make my first invitations and provocations to our community alongside these singular artists.” –Patricia McGregor
