    THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY was founded in 1970 by Crystal Field to realize clear purposes and goals:

    -to embody the vision of a center for new and innovative theater arts that would be truly accessible to the community and its experimental theater artists.

    -to discover relevant new writing and to nurture new playwrights.

    -to be a bridge between playwright, experimental theater artist, and the ever growing audiences in the community.

    -to create spaces where a new vision can breathe and be nourished by a working process not subject to commercial constraints and pressures.

    -to create events and ways in which to bring theater into the community and bring the community into the theater.

    THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY is a unique cultural Institution that has earned a nationwide reputation for its dedication to nurturing established and emerging playwrights who experiment with new forms and to presenting other experimental and developmental theaters with a very active program of Community Art Services and Festivals which continue to expand theater accessibility.
