“Theatre for a New Audience, under its Founding Artistic Director Jeffrey Horowitz, has devoted more than three decades to conjuring epic landscapes in small spaces.”– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Founded in 1979 by Jeffrey Horowitz, the mission of Theatre for a New Audience is to develop and vitalize the performance and study of Shakespeare and classic drama. In 2001, Theatre for a New Audience became the first American theatre invited to bring a production of Shakespeare to the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. Theatre for a New Audience produces for audiences Off-Broadway and has also toured nationally, internationally and played on Broadway. In 2013, after more than three decades of award-winning and internationally-acclaimed productions, Theatre for a New Audience opened Polonsky Shakespeare Center in the heart of Fort Greene, Brooklyn.




Deloitte and Bloomberg Philanthropies are the 2022-2023 Season Sponsors.
