Naked Angels Partners with The New School for Drama
"This is a win-win for both Naked Angels and the New School for Drama," said Virginia P. Louloudes, Executive Director of the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York). "By choosing a professional theatre company with a rich history of nurturing some of today's finest writers, directors and actors, the New School has created a stronger program that will make them more competitive to undergraduate and graduate students seeking a life in the theatre."
THE NEW SCHOOL, a leading progressive university in New York City, was founded in 1919 as a center of intellectual and artistic freedom. Today The New School is still in the vanguard of innovation and experimentation in higher education, with 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students in design and the social sciences, liberal arts, management and public administration, the arts, and media, and thousands of adult learners in continuing education courses. Committed to public engagement, The New School welcomes thousands of New Yorkers yearly to its celebrated public programs and maintains a global presence through its online learning programs, research institutes, and international partnerships.

Naked Angels is committed to strengthening a community of artists through the development and production of provocative new work. Over the past twenty five years, the company has played a role in developing hundreds of critically acclaimed new plays including Jon Robin Baitz's THE SUBSTANCE OF FIRE and Warren Leight's SIDE MAN, and producing the world premieres of Stephen Belber's TAPE and FAULT LINES, Elizabeth Meriwether's THE MISTAKES MADELINE MADE, Geoffrey Nauffts' Tony Award-nominated play NEXT FALL, and, most recently, the U.S. premiere of Chloe Moss' THIS WIDE NIGHT and the world premiere of Zayd Dohrn's OUTSIDE PEOPLE. From New York to LA, the company inspires fresh voices to generate new work through its popular Tuesdays@9 (cold readings of plays, screenplays, stories and music in early development), 1st Mondays (public readings of new full-length plays), and Angels in Progress (weeks long workshops). The company's newest venture, Naked Radio, brings the work of talented new writers from the stage to the digital airwaves through weekly blogs and podcasts: www.nakedangels.com/nakedradio.
