Theater for the New City is coming to Washington Square Park! As part of their Street Theater program, the Pulitzer Prize winning community cultural center is presenting “SHAME! Or The Doomsday Machine,” written and directed by Theater for the New City co-founder, artistic director and OBIE award-winning actress, Crystal Field. The show follows a high school teachers quest for truth, embarking on a fantastical journey exploring the shameful state of corrupt politics, capitalism, racism and gun violence through slapstick humor and song.
Now in its 48th year, Theater for the New City is a unique cultural institution that has earned a nationwide reputation for its dedication to nurturing established and emerging playwrights who experiment with new forms and to presenting other experimental and developmental theaters with a very active program of Community Art Services and Festivals which continue to expand theater accessibility.
