Today we saw "Scenes from a Marriage" in a new production by the New York Theater Workshop and were amazed by the wonderful and talented troupe of actors in a fresh, new presentation of the Bergman classic from the 1970's. The play was riveting, the emotions raw, and the lessons heartbreaking. NYTW consistently produces quality theater.

I recently saw "Scenes from a Marriage". As another reviewer pointed out, the staging was unusual, but in my eyes, it completely worked with the amazing cast that brought the play to life. Even 2 weeks after, when I describe this play, the performers and the set, I still feel all the raw emotions and power of the words and... More

We saw Ivo Van Hove's reworking of Scenes From a Marriage. The production was not without flaws but it was done and a rather interesting way that made us want to go back and see more of what this Off Broadway theater whose mission is to put on relatively new productions has to offer.

My wife and I went to the NYTW for the first time last night to see Bacharach Reimagined. The show was tremendous, and the theater even better. What a cool intimate place. Every seat is like sitting in the best seat in the house. A small warm place, with a very pleasant staff. Sorry this is the first time we... More

The Saturday matinee on December 21, 2013 was excellent; Kyle Riabko and the cast had the perfect presence and voices for the creative rearranging of Bacharach's wonderful music; the production had gentleness and softness and emotional quality as well as the energetic interpretation of some of the songs - the lighting and scene production was great. Bacharach music is STILL... More

I am a big fan of the New York Theater Workshop. The theater is tiny and the productions are often new and/or experimental. The acting is always top notch and the intimate surroundings make it a special experience. Many of their shows go on to Broadway runs ("Rent", "Once", "Peter and the Starcatchers" for example), where you get to pay... More

Saw "Once the Musical" at the New York Theater Workshop, a show now moving to Broadway. The theater itself is tucked away in the East Village and casts a great show. Can't wait to see this one again when it opens next month!

I went to see Ivo van Hove's production of Lillian Hellman's classic play and the entire production, but especially the acting, was spectacular. For me, THIS is New York Theater, not the tourist-driven entertainment on Broadway. One often takes for granted the amazing, world-class talent resident in the City. The NYTW doesn't. It is a very special place for the... More
