THANK YOU

New Dramatists’ programs are made possible, in part, by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State legislature. The Jerry A. Tishman Playwrights Creativity Fund is sustained by the Jerry A. Tishman Living Trust. The Fund was founded in 2008 by a lead grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and has received major support from the Time Warner Foundation and the Scherman Foundation’s Katharine S. and Axel G. Rosin Fund. Extended musical workshops supported in part by the Frederick Loewe Foundation. Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting New Dramatists. New Dramatists receives support from the Dramatists Guild Fund. Special thanks to Google for its Ad Grant, which provides in-kind AdWords advertising to promote New Dramatists’ mission, writers and events on Google search result pages.
