New York Theatre Workshop Announces January Virtual Programming
The Off-Broadway institution returns in 2021 with an indigenous theatre festival, an open mic night, and more.
New York Theatre Workshop has unveiled its lineup of virtual programming for the month of January, including the second annual Reflections of Native Voices Festival, The Wright Stuff by Doug Wright, and a virtual open mic night.
The Wright Stuff by Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Doug Wright will explore how comedians use humor to articulate today’s most urgent truths. Five episodes will drop January 19 on YouTube, each one in conversation with a different performer: Andy Borowitz, Aasif Mandvi, Nancy Giles, Paul Rudnick, and Jenny Hagel.
Running January 25–February 7 will be the 2nd annual Reflections of Native Voices Festival, Safe Harbors NYC’s spotlight on theatre, music, and native dance performances by Indigenous artists from across the country. Among the highlights are Everything is a Circle by Ikidowin, Este Cate by Nicholson Billey, Duke by Moses Goods, and Tipi Tales from the Stoop by Murielle Borst-Tarrant. The festival is presented in partnership with La MaMa Indigenous Initiative, which will present three pieces on its own website.
NYTW will then present its next virtual open mic night with the theme of Let Them Hear You January 28 at 7 PM. To register to perform or RSVP to attend for free, click here.
