Theatre Now New York is a small non-profit company that focuses on the creation and development of new plays and musicals towards the presentation of fully produced shows.
Our flagship program is our annual SOUND BITES Festival of 10-minute Musicals now entering it’s fifth year. SOUND BITES offers a unique opportunity for talented writers, composers, and lyricists to showcase their work in front of audiences and industry professionals. Through an open submission process, Theatre Now New York selects the ten best 10-minute musicals or musical stand-alone excerpts which are then presented as a one evening event in NYC at an off Broadway theatre. SOUND BITES gives an exhilarating opportunity for artists of all theatrical disciplines at any point in their careers in getting their work seen and possibly developed further or even produced. Our SOUND BITES website is at www.soundbites.tnny.org and our main website is at www.tnny.org
