In the past 25 years, Emerging Artists has premiered over 400 new works and also garnered a Drama Desk Nomination, received the American Theatre Wing Grant Award for Consistent Commitment to Excellence in Theatre, and was named Best Off-Off Broadway Theatre Company in NYC for Actors to Work with by Backstage Magazine. 

Emerging Artists New Work Series, is a biannual festival that gives artists a rare opportunity to present their work-in-progress before an audience, afterwards engaging in a meaningful talkback session with audience, director, cast, and curator. The resulting insights are invaluable to the process, providing the playwright with the tools necessary to take the work to the next level. Curators for the NWS include Paul Adams, Andrea Alton, Derek Jamison, Scott Klavan, and Vanessa Shealy.

Emerging Artists Theatre gratefully acknowledges the Century Arts Foundation for making the New Work Series possible. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
