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.
In this beautiful month of May, we are delighted to shine a spotlight on a member of the NYTW Staff who has rejoined us this spring after an amazing run on Broadway! So without further ado, reintroducing to some and presenting to others, our phenomenal Marketing and Audience Services Manager, Brennie Tellu!

This Community Spotlight features Khalilah Elliott, our extraordinary Interim Marketing Director for the winter and spring season. Khalilah joins us for a quick conversation about her work as an artist and arts administrator. Check out what she had to say!
Welcome back to another Community Spotlight! With spring finally here and the NYTW Annual Gala just right around the corner, we thought we’d take a peek into our wonderful Development department to spotlight our one and only Development Associate for Individual Giving and Special Events, Victoria Foster. See what Victoria had to say about her time at the Workshop!
Welcome back to another community spotlight! This week we’re spotlighting our fabulous Education Associate, Psacoya Guinn. Psacoya joined the team over the summer and has already established herself as a vital member of the NYTW community. Among many other things, she works in tandem with the rest of the Education team to help facilitate our education programs, including Mind the Gap and Youth Artistic Instigators. Check out her interview below!
This summer we had the pleasure of welcoming back two former 2050 Administrative Fellows as full-time staff! As we brave the cold of winter, enjoy this throwback Community Spotlight featuring our Marketing Associate, Uno Servida and our Artistic Coordinator, Leo Angulo.
One of the most exciting aspects of being an Administrative Fellow here at the Workshop is being able to witness all of the unique and diverse programming that goes on throughout the year. After shadowing the Youth Artistic Instigators program, it was not difficult to be blown away by the entire experience. Students were not only expected to engage with challenging and timely materials, but they were also expected to collaborate with each other in a space that gave them complete freedom to create bold activist theatre. It was then, after my short time shadowing the program, that I reached out to the fantastic teaching artists who facilitate the program sessions to ask them how were they intentionally approaching teaching artistry in this hybrid era.

As we make a return to live performance and NYTW staff heads back to our offices, we are proud to announce the Fellows that will be joining us this September as part of the 2050 Administrative Fellowship for the 2021/22 Season.
“This vital program has been a tremendous source of talent and energy in our community over the last several years. While ultimately the right call, it was a painful decision to forgo having a new cohort of Fellows last year, and their absence was deeply felt. We could not be more excited to be welcoming these eight talented young people to the Workshop in September!” said Artistic Director James C. Nicola and Managing Director Jeremy Blocker.
For 30 years, our Summer Residency at Dartmouth College has been the beating heart of our Workshop activity. Our Workshop is not about readying work for production, but about giving artists the space to experiment and ask the challenging questions about their work. For three weeks each August, our Artistic Staff and a group of artists gather in the Upper Valley, working on particular projects, building community, and finding respite from the demands and frenetic energy of routine in NYC (and beyond).

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!
