New York Classical Theatre’s mission is to reinvigorate and create audiences for the theatre by presenting free and accessible productions of popular classics and forgotten masterpieces in non-traditional public spaces throughout New York City.
New York Classical Theatre’s hallmark is accessibility and our signature staging style, Panoramic Theatre: innovative staging that eliminates the distance between actor and audience thereby heightening theatregoers’ emotional and physical investment with the performance. Our productions transform expansive public venues into theatrical settings and use different areas to stage specific scenes. Audiences enter the world of the play and become active participants in the drama unfolding around them.
New York Classical Theatre is distinguished by its innovative productions in public spaces and recognized as New York City’s only 'all-free' Off-Broadway theatre company.
