“2020 has been so challenging in countless ways,” shares New Rep Artistic Director, Michael J. Bobbitt. This fall, we’ve decided to focus on celebrating the diversity of artists that make New Rep a home to us all. We’ve watched activists demand change. We’ve listened to crowds chant ‘I can’t breathe’. We’re making changes to our organization to grow our anti-racist culture. Now it’s time for us to bring the talents of New Rep artists into the safety of your home.”
About the Donate a Ticket Program
In celebration of the evening and the launch of our New Traditions Fund, we will be offering a Donate a Ticket program, which allows patrons to purchase additional tickets to be included in a pool of donated tickets.
