July 2017 – Theater is an essential part of New York City’s cultural and educational life. Live theater is getting the support it needs thanks to an award winning theater company called Urban Stages.
NYC VIBE caught up with Urban Stages at its annual gala benefit at the Boathouse in Central Park to honor the legendary Academy Award winning set and costume designer Tony Walton. The Benefit also raised funds to support Urban Stages’ mission to bring theater to everyone in New York City’s schools and communities.
Urban Stages produces a wide range of plays – including productions that explore science, and musicals which appeal to age groups ranging from toddlers to seniors. Urban Stages also hosts dance and mime workshops as well as magic productions.
So the next time you see a new, innovative, Off-Broadway theatrical production in New York City…..Chances are it was inspired by Urban Stages!
