Theatre for a New Audience is an Off-Broadway not-for-profit theatre producer, founded in 1979 by Jeffrey Horowitz. The Theatre's mission is to develop and vitalize the performance and study of Shakespeare and classic drama. Through its text-based productions, the Theatre broadens cultural literacy and engages diverse audiences in masterworks that offer context and perspective to current events and contemporary life. Intrinsic to this mission are the Theatre's arts in education programs—the largest in-depth residencies to introduce classic drama and playwriting in the New York City Public Schools—and its expanding humanities and audience engagement programs.
