The mission of the New York Classical Theatre is to present free productions of classic plays in unusual NYC venues. The group believes that the themes of Shakespeare, Chekhov, and Moliere are very relevant to modern New Yorkers. By presenting these works, they foster an understanding of human nature and societal roles. And because the shows are all free, they attract many underserved and diverse spectators.

Soon, they became a pivotal part of the local theatre scene, and so much more. For example, their 2006 production of Mary Stuart revitalized Castle Clinton. Then, after Hurricane Sandy, they presented The Tempest in that same place. The troupe has been hailed for its efforts by The New York Times, The Village Voice, Fox News, TheaterMania, and WNBC. Catching a performance by the New York Classical Theatre is definitely something for your to-do list- and it won’t cost a cent!
