Mission Statement

New York Shakespeare Exchange bridges cultural divides, starts conversations, promotes education, and brings communities together through diverse, classically-based programming that re-imagines how Shakespearean theater and poetry can impact our modern world. Brimming with an unwavering sense of adventure, our work honors the legacy of the Bard while intersecting his poetry with today’s ever-changing social, political, and technological landscapes. From star-crossed lovers wooing across a crowded bar, to sonnets interpreted as independent film, to live productions that highlight Shakespeare’s verse in a contemporary context, our projects challenge expectations and lead us forward to continued innovation.

Description

Our programming currently lives in multiple channels: Live Productions; The Sonnet Project; ShakesBEER, NYC's Original Shakespearean Pub Crawl; Freestyle Labs; and Educational Initiatives. We are building out a larger umbrella project called INTERSECTIONS that will deliver all of this programming to communities across the US.

We are a small but rapidly growing organization. In only 9 years we have carved out a strong niche in the NYC theater scene and across the globe. Our projects and productions are well-reviewed and our audience is passionate and loyal.
