Mona Pirnot’s I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I COULD DIE takes the stage on Feb 1!

Part concert, part play, intricate and intimate, wry and tender, elemental and wholly unforgettable, NYTW Usual Suspect Mona Pirnot wrestles with the private and unspeakable in a very public way through song and monologues performed by a computer. NYTW Usual Suspect and Tony Award nominee Lucas Hnath directs.

The creative team includes Mimi Lien (Scenic Design), Enver Chakartash (Costume Design), Oona Curley (Lighting Design), Mikhail Fiksel & Noel Nichols (Sound Design), Will Butler (Music Director) and Shelley Miles (Stage Manager).

MIND THE GAP, our free intergenerational theatre program, is one of the most unique educational offerings you’ll find in NYC these days. Hear from recent participants about their experiences and learn why MIND THE GAP is such a special program.

Since 2009, we’ve been connecting young people (ages 14-19) and elders (ages 60+) through the power of storytelling. Over the course of 12 in-person sessions between Jan–Mar 2024, participants will work together in intergenerational pairs to write plays inspired by their partner’s personal stories. And the best part: no theatre experience is required to participate!

At New York Theatre Workshop, we believe in saying YES to audacious artists, experimental work, and vital community programming. In a time of deep contraction in the field, we are keeping our doors and minds open to worlds of possibility. But we cannot do it alone. If you truly believe that visionary work can change you, then you belong here. And if you believe in a special laboratory on 4th Street where virtuosic work can also be accessible work that creates a sense of belonging, then now is the time to show up for the Workshop so that we can keep showing up for you.

2020/21 Season Announcements

We’re pleased to share our artistic and operational plans for the coming year, which have been developed in accordance with our Core Values. In our ongoing commitment to becoming a fully anti-racist organization, we’re publishing those Core Values alongside action steps to interrogate our practices, disrupt patterns that reinforce institutionalized oppressions and inequities, acknowledge our missteps, and hold our organization to a standard that does not accept that this work is ever done. We stand in solidarity with the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) members of our community, and we recognize that have not always lived up to these values and must contend with the harm that those shortcomings have caused.

NYTW ARTISTIC UPDATE:

While the timeline for resuming in-person performances in New York City remains uncertain, we believe great work is still possible!

We’re committing resources to support a group of extraordinary Artistic Instigators to create and develop new work and to share that work with audiences in both existing formats and in ways yet to be imagined.
