How Lloyd Suh’s ‘The Chinese Lady’ made it through 2 years of pandemic, protest, and anti-Asian hate to emerge as the nation’s most-produced and possibly most essential play.
Manhattan Theatre Club has extended commissions to several writers and launched a new Groundworks Lab program.
Lloyd Suh’s play, which will be the most-produced of the coming season, speaks directly both to our tangled past and our complicated present.
A co-production among Woolly Mammoth, the Huntington, and Pasadena Playhouse gives new life to Mike Lew’s disability-themed spin on ‘Richard III.’
Together, Children’s Theatre Company, Latino Theater Company, Ma-Yi Theater Company, Native Voices at the Autry, and Penumbra Theatre will commission 16 new works for multigenerational audiences.
Included in the announcement are the recipients of $24,000 in micro-grants from the New York City company as well as an upcoming benefit reading.
The racist stereotypes and erasure perpetuated on white-dominated U.S. stages have real-world consequences outside the theatre.
The grant program will benefit ten BIPOC, trans, and disabled artists.
The season will feature readings, a new audio project, and multiple international collaborations.
This week’s virtual offerings will take you places, from the worlds of hip-hop and RPG games to the circus.
