Theater for a New Audience

Performing Arts in Brooklyn: Fort Greene, Clinton Hill & Bed-Stuy

Part of the emerging cultural district surrounding BAM, the Theater for a New Audience opened in late 2013, in a grand new building inspired by London's Cottesloe Theatre. The calendar features avant-garde productions of works by Shakespeare, Ibsen and Strindberg, as well as more recent works by playwrights like Richard Maxwell and his theater company the New York City Players.

Julie Taymor's wildly reconfigured Midsummer Night's Dream opened the theater's first season to much acclaim.
