New Georges, founded in 1992, is a strategically small company with a national reputation as an innovative producer of ambitious new plays by women, and as a home to some of the country’s most promising and accomplished women theater artists.
New Georges operates on two tiers: production and play/artist development. We are hands-on producers, working closely with director and playwright to bring highly theatrical new works to audiences in downtown venues. We also provide essential resources and opportunities to an community of affiliated artists currently numbering 180. The primary resource with which we serve artists is The Room, our permanent workspace for women theater artists, located in A.R.T./New York's Spaces at 520 at 520 Eighth Avenue. In addition to using The Room for our own programs and rehearsals, we provide space to affiliated artists for their own projects at subsidized rates -- a critical program in Manhattan, where affordable space is scarce.
