New Light Theater Project (NLTP) is an off-off-Broadway not-for-profit theater company dedicated to producing theatrical works that feature compelling stories created by emerging theater artists.
Led by Artistic Director Sarah Norris and Producing Director Michael Aguirre, NLTP believes in the strength of ensemble-work and are committed to nurturing our resident artists comprised of writers, actors, directors, stage managers, and designers from various backgrounds. At least 50% of NLTP productions always involve our resident artists while the rest of the production team consists of innovative artists we hope to cultivate relationships with.
NLTP strives to provide sustained opportunities for our resident artists. What started as a weekly Sunday gathering of friends over pancakes, coffee, and plays has evolved into a company of resident artists who care about the work we are contributing to the artistic make-up of New York City, and ultimately, seek a home that encompasses the communal spirit of theater.
Since 2013, NLTP has mounted over 30 full productions which have received critical praise including Best of Theater 2014 (The L Magazine), inducted into Indie Theater Now's People of the Year/Indie Theater Hall of Fame, and received residencies from Theatre Row on 42nd Street, The Flea Theater’s Anchor Program, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Residency Fellowship, Chicago Dramatists Grafting Project, IRT 3B Residency, and the Access Theater Residency Program. NLTP is a 501(c)3 organization.
