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. We’ve had the honor this season to partner with journalist and theatre critic Jose Solís and the BIPOC Critics Lab, so you’ll also see contributions from lab participants as they interview NYTW 2020/21 Artistic Instigators.

Announcing the 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons!

We’re proud to announce the complete 2021/22 Season as well as initial work for the 2022/23 Season!

“As we considered our return to live performance, we realized that in addition to the interrupted commitments we’d made, the artists in our community had not stopped creating—there was even more work that demanded our attention,” said Artistic Director James C. Nicola and Managing Director Jeremy Blocker.
