About James C. Nicola and New York Theatre Workshop

For over thirty years, James C. Nicola has helmed NYTW with the goal of impacting the field of theater and bringing new work to mainstream stages. NYTW supports the visionary work of artists through residencies, fellowships and workshops—laboratories of experimentation. With a commitment to pushing aesthetic boundaries and amplifying new voices, NYTW asks what it means to be alive today and inspires audiences' new perspectives and understandings.

Every August, the company brings their work to Dartmouth for a three-week residency to develop and perform new works-in-progress by some of today's most innovative professional playwrights and directors. Recent Dartmouth residency projects have included We Live In Cairo, currently in production at Boston's American Repertory Theater, and Hadestown, which won eight 2019 Tony awards for its current Broadway production.
