The New Group

“The grant from the Howard Gilman Foundation is a welcome affirmation of The New Group’s 20-year history of developing and producing powerful, contemporary theater for New York City audiences. The creative risks we take by choosing bold new work would not be possible without support like this. This crucial grant will help sustain The New Group as we continue into our next phase of growth with our Mainstage productions and our play and musical development program. We are proud to continue pushing boundaries this coming season with the potent Mercury Fur by Phillip Ridley; the world premiere of Mark Gerrard’s first play, Steve; and the opportunity to revive Sam Shepard’s Buried Child with two of our favorite actors, Ed Harris and Amy Madigan.”
