New Repertory Theatre (NRT) aims to be regionally focused, driven by diverse interests and stories drawn from the communities surrounding us. We will prioritize a collaborative process centered on new work, new voices, and creative programming in order to produce memorable, evocative performing arts experiences.
New Rep looks to broaden the theatre scene in greater Boston by giving voice and interpretation to stories and artists whose perspectives are often underrepresented, but whose experiences are relevant for everyone. We recognize that serious work lies ahead as we involve our region’s communities in this creative adventure.
Our vision has evolved in response to the pandemic, and societal upheaval raising awareness of systemic racial injustice and widespread inequity. We want to reimagine how this theatre company can best serve the community that includes both artists and the audience. As the world is changing, theatre also must be different going forward.
New Rep remains committed to staging productions and events that speak to the vital ideas of our time. Inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, and accountability (IDEAA) will infuse every aspect of our work as we build community collaborations and give voice to the diverse interests of those communities.
