This August, Charles Isherwood wrote in The New York Times, New York audiences could surely support a first-class Shakespeare theater. The need is real. Shakespeare is the taproot of the English-language theater, a limitless source of inspiration for theater artists of all kinds, an ever-renewable source of pleasure for audiences. To read him is a joy, yes, but the plays are better said than read.
We agree. The need is real. Theatre for a New Audience aims to provide our city with this first-class Shakespeare theatre with our first home in the BAM Cultural District.
