According to Lincoln Center's new LCT3 project at its slogan, it takes "New Audiences for New Artists." It also takes new critics, hence the establishment of Theater Talk's New Theater Corps in 2005, a way for up-and-coming theater writers and eager new theatergoers to get exposure to the ever-growing theater scene in New York City. Writers for the New Theater Corps are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the off-off and off-Broadway theater scene, learning and giving back high-quality reviews at the same time. Driven by a passion and love of the arts, the New Theater Corps aims to identify, support, and grow the arts community, one show and one person at a time.

The Broadway Strike

Far be it from any of us here at New Theater Corps to judge the actions of producers or stagehands, but rather than bemoan the absence of shows we were looking forward to, like August: Osage County or The Farnsworth Invention, why not take this as a valuable opportunity to explore some of the Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway shows that we try to shed light on each week? The season's far from over, and we'll keep you posted with notes from the field as we continue to highlight some of the hits and misses off the Great White Way.
