Mission and History



The New Stage Theatre Company is an award-winning theatre company founded in 2002 by Hungarian native Ildiko Nemeth. Over the years New Stage has built a name for itself as a “daring downtown experimental group” (Backstage) that achieves a vital theatrical expression through a blending of cultural and stylistic influences. The company's works are distinguished by their bold visual style and compelling mix of absurdist and physical humor with dark and difficult themes. Drawing from the traditions of Eastern European theatre, the company premieres foreign playwrights' works in New York and creates original works through collaboration between its artists. Since 2008 New Stage has produced plays by invitation at legendary Off-Off Broadway institutions including La MaMa, Theater for the New City and Dixon Place. Its 2015 production, Night by Charles L. Mee, received the Outstanding Performance Art Production Award from the New York Innovative Theatre Awards; in 2016, New Stage received the prestigious Caffe Cino Fellowship, awarded to a company that consistently produces outstanding work. The IT Awards named the 10th anniversary of New Stage Theatre Company a “story of the year,” commenting, “For a decade Ildiko Nemeth and [NSTC] have been bringing their unique brand of sophisticated, inspired and startling stage craft to NYC stages.” For more information, please visit our website at www.newstagetheatrecompany.org
