About Theater for the New City (TNC)

Theater for the New City (TNC) as a venue for new artists and playwrights, it presents performances that would probably otherwise not be seen by the general public. TNC is unique in its commitment to both high artistic standards and community service. In an effort to make theater accessible to all, TNC sponsors several free, multi-ethnic events a year, including the Lower East Side Festival of the Arts, which celebrates the artistic and cultural diversity of TNC’s Lower East Side community, and the Annual Summer Street Theater, which travels to thirteen neighborhoods in all five boroughs. TNC has consistently been the most inexpensive theater of its caliber, with the Dream Up Festival ticket prices will be $12-$15 for the participating productions. For a special engagement performance the ticket price is $20. As the cultural hub of its downtown New York City location, TNC develops new artists and inspires future audiences.

About TNC’s Dream Up Festival
The motto of the festival is "Dream Up: Invent, Concoct."
The festival is dedicated to new works.

Up to now, Theater for the New City has primarily served local theater artists. The Dream Up Festival opens up the theater to the country at large and to artists from overseas. Its founders feel this is especially needed now in a time of declining donations to the arts, grants not being awarded due to market conditions, and arts funding cuts on almost every level all across the country and abroad.
The question of the artist's vision to free or attack the material will be asked in each application. The festival does not want traditional theater which is presented in a traditional way. Theater for the New City wants to use this festival as a way to push ideas to the forefront with the hope of revealing roads less traveled or undiscovered. Presentation of a straightforward play must be imaginative in some way.
