New York Stage and Film (NYSAF) is a non-profit company dedicated to both emerging and established artists in the development and production of new works for theater and film. Since 1985, NYSAF has played a major role in the development of new plays for the American theater, provided a home for a diverse group of artists free from critical and commercial pressures, and has established itself as a vital cultural institution for residents of the New York metropolitan region. The people and projects we support go on to shape the landscape of theater in America and around the world; our apprentices and interns mature to become leaders in the performing arts and beyond; and our audiences sustain the work of celebrated artists and newly-discovered voices, as crucial participants in the creation of new work.
The cornerstone of NYSAF’s artistic programming is the Powerhouse Season, an eight-week residency and partnership with Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, where each summer more than two hundred and fifty professional playwrights, directors, actors, and designers as well as close to fifty student apprentices live and work together. During the Powerhouse Season, NYSAF is deliberately flexible with its production resources and with its three producing venues, to meet the specific needs of artists and projects. The professional artists present mainstage productions with full technical support, as well as workshops and readings of works in progress, all of which are open to the public.
Nearly 30 projects developed recently by NYSAF have had or will soon have major productions this year, including: Hamilton, by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Broadway); The Humans (Broadway); Bright Star by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell (Broadway); The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe (The Playwrights Realm); The Babylon Line by Richard Greenberg (Lincoln Center Theatre); A 24-Decade History of Popular Music by Taylor Mac (St. Ann’s Warehouse); The Light Years by The Debate Society (Playwrights Horizons); The Fortress of Solitude, by Michael Friedman and Itamar Moses (Public Theater & Dallas Theater Center); Found, book by Hunter Bell & Lee Overtree, music and original lyrics by Eli Bolin (Atlantic Theater Company); The Invisible Hand, by Ayad Akhtar (New York Theatre Workshop); etc.
