From the NYNWTF website:
We wanted to make a difference. Our intent was to create a legitimate theatre festival that incorporated the Broadway community into an environment that truly supported talented writers at little cost for the participants. Essentially, this is the first festival of its kind and we’re thrilled to be helping make the dreams of Broadway and T.V.’s next generation of writers become realities.
This is your shot.
Let’s put out a product that will create your mark and introduce you to the writing community while at the same time creating a terrific evening of theatre.
