The Theater for the New City (TNC) is one of New York City’s most renowned theater organizations. The TNC produces approximately 30 to 40 plays a year giving new and upcoming playwrights an opportunity to showcase their work as well as senior playwrights an opportunity to build upon their illustrious reputations. The theater also served as a foster home to various multi-ethnic theater groups searching for a place to perform, such as the Mabou Mines, COBU and The Living Theater. TNC has also produced Between Life and Death, the only play to be produced in America by Gao Xingjian before he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2000. A winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Mayor’s Stop the Violence Award and 43 Obie Awards, TNC has been known for its magnificent performances and workshops and for their undying community service ethic since its founding in the early 70’s.
So knowing that you are just a few blocks away from one of the most amazing off-Broadway theaters in New York City, how can you resist the opportunity to get involved yourself? On October 11, the TNC is offering the people of New York a chance to go behind the scenes and experience just what goes on in the background of some of the lower East side’s most famed productions.
The dinner and show event will feature a dinner buffet, cocktails, the chance to converse with a playwright and free admission to any of the evening’s 8 p.m. musical or play performances. So don’t miss out on what is promising to be a night full of extravagance and insight.
