nurtures the creation, development, and performance of new works;
and engages audiences in the creative process to promote a deeper understanding of the transformative power of music-theatre in its many forms.
Committed to “changing the conversation through the arts,” artists from Alliance for New Music-Theatre believe that through collaboration and in partnership with key arts organizations, embassies, and other institutions, we can transform the capital into a world-class center for cross-fertilization in the arts. We can create opportunities for new voices and bring stories to the stage that matter -- with music that breaks open hearts. We share a vision that through bold and healing art-making and practices we improve our community and the globe.
