We are instituting a virtual open mic. We are going to do our part to keep up your emotional health, which is so important for your physical health and immune system. We are requesting an open mic as follows: we are asking for anyone who is able to video through their phone a scene, or a monologue, or a poem, or a story that they can send us. We are looking for theater pieces, theater works, poetry, etc., that will uplift us and give us hope so that we can successfully weather this not-quite-perfect storm.
Send to email@example.com and we will take it from there.

An entertaining, innovative and immersive tour de force, Electric’s production presents his view of the classic show and story in which audience members can become part of the performance.
This is the kind of play everyone can relate to. The audience will see themselves, their family members, or a friend or someone they know who have strong ties to what they’ll see on stage. 2008 was a decisive year in American history. The country elected its first African-American president ever voted to the presidency. The former senator was ready to take office obliterating the last barrier in American politics, which many believed at the time. He was the first sitting president to visit a federal prison, in Oklahoma, where the opening story takes place. The visit was an attempt to bring attention to the policies that sustain mass incarceration. The play, “Moments of TRUTH” tackles issues such as the mass incarceration of people of color, the authorities’ neglection towards that population, mental illness, family, romance and the real meaning of love and family.
The motto of the festival is "Dream Up: Invent, Concoct." The festival is dedicated to new works. 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.
