THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY

New York, NY


THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY was founded in 1970 by Crystal Field to realize clear purposes and goals:

- To embody the vision of a center for new and innovative theater arts that would be truly accessible to the community and its experimental theater artists.

- To discover relevant new writing and to nurture new playwrights.
To be a bridge between the playwright, experimental theater artist, and the ever-growing audiences in the community.

- To create spaces where a new vision can breathe and be nourished by a working process not subject to commercial constraints and pressures.

- To create events and ways in which to bring theater into the community and bring the community into the theater.

- To involve disadvantaged youngsters in theater arts in order to focus their energies towards creativity and achievement.

Con Han Cabaret

October 20, 2019 3:00 PM - October 27, 2019 3:00 PM

The Theater for the New City is pleased to present Walter Corwins Con Hand Cabaret. Workers dismembering the Statue of liberty rediscover Emma Lazarus poem; exercise and cynicism mingle with sweat at the local "Y" and John Proctor takes a savage turn in Old Salem; an academic ponders his past mistakes awaiting the MeToo revelations long hidden in the margins of his diaries: Con Hand Cabaret is a futuristic revue composed of Theater For The New City stalwart Walter Corwins fast paced Brechtian short comedies.

One Eyed King

October 20, 2019 3:00 PM - October 27, 2019 3:00 PM

The play is a meditation on how technology is very dangerous for the entire planet but also a reflection and meditation about consciousness, love, and the greed of some humans.

Soup or Heroes

October 20, 2019 3:00 PM

Soup Or Heroes is a one-act play certain to make you laugh: Two friends write the next big superhero film together. Will this hero have flight? Or super strength? Tights? Or a cape? Can they agree? Or will the forces of darkness drag them into mediocrity? "Soup Or Heroes" takes on the superhero genre and the giant cartoon sized bags of money that await anyone who gets the script writing formula just right. (PG-rated)

Hooked on Happiness

November 07, 2019 8:00 PM - December 01, 2019 8:00 PM

Hooked on Happiness is the new musical about the members of a senior high-school drama class who decide to create their own show about climate change, instead of the putting on the usual shows the drama teacher has recommended. When the teacher sees some of the lyrics they've developed, she is impressed and gives them permission to present the show.

The Whites

November 07, 2019 8:00 PM - November 24, 2019 3:00 PM

"The Whites" takes us into a universe where the races are flipped and Whites are actually citizens of an ethnic underclass that is dominated by African-Americans. We watch the Caucasian family of Harris and Rasheeda White contend with gun violence, school segregation and the aftermath of prison. For this family and their surrounding community, the everyday experiences of economic, political and social injustice are imposed by Blacks.
