Repeat Defenders

NYTW is dedicated to nurturing artists and their stories at every stage of their development. And when we do our job right, we give artists the support they need to formulate ideas and create experiences that are innovative and impactful.  While our in-person activities are temporarily suspended, we are committed to supporting our community, and are continuing to pay our staff and artists throughout this crisis. We are also offering free virtual programming to the entire NYTW community while we make plans and preparations for the moment when we are able to gather together again.

Thankfully, we are supported by a loyal group of donors who continue to make our work possible. NYTW’s most committed patrons are part of a group called The Society of Repeat Defenders. Members enjoy all sorts of benefits and—credit where credit is due—special acknowledgment in our programs. Most importantly, Repeat Defenders get the satisfaction of knowing that their efforts are helping us push the boundaries of what theatre can be and what it can do.

*Please note: 2020/21 Season benefits are subject to change based on the continued impact of the COVID-19 health crisis.
