The New York New Works Theatre Festival has aggregated leaders in the television and theatre communities who donate their time to review the leading writers of tomorrow. Our main objective is to have a fabulous time celebrating the arts.
Performing in the heart of Times Square's celebrated theatre district (2017 took place at the Duke Theatre / 2018 staged on 42nd Street's Theatre Row), NYNW has made a point of selecting pieces that are considered of the upper echelon of talent that the industry has to offer; participants range from those still in school, to television celebrities, to Broadway stars, to Broadway revivals. All styles are represented i.e. plays, musicals, and comedies. Several of our applicants have even adapted screenplays for the stage.
Performance lengths are to be between 10 and 26 minutes as the feedback has been that investors can tell within moments if it is a piece of work that they wish to participate in and appreciate being able to see several investment worthy performances in one evening. Many past performances are full length in nature however, were abbreviated for this showcase; many are one acts.
Our success page speaks for itself and represents the relationships that have developed.
We do not make promises, however, several shows have seen success. Please identify in your application interesting, "story worthy" notes that make your submission special.
Once your application has been submitted please remember to email your script / cover letter / photos to . "Like" our FaceBook page and follow our Instagram account for updates!
