Offscript: Jim Nicola’s Workshop Ethic

This week the editors talk to the artistic director of New York Theatre Workshop about his long and influential tenure there, which will end in June.

Offscript, American Theatre’s flagship podcast for a number of years, is back as a Facebook Live chat with the magazine’s editors and special guests as well as an audio podcast.

This week the editors talk to a giant in the field, New York Theatre Workshop artistic director Jim Nicola, who in June will leave the Off-Broadway powerhouse he’s run since 1988. In a wide-ranging conversation, he talks about the highlights and challenges of his momentous years producing work by everyone from Ivo van Hove to Aleshea Harris, about the dangerous temptations of enhancement money, and about his hopes for the theatre he leaves to the next generation (his successor has not yet been announced).
