NYC’S PREMIER HUB FOR NEW TALENT

Ars Nova is committed to developing and producing theater, comedy and music artists in the early stages of their professional careers. Our unique development programs are designed to support outside-the-box thinking and encourage innovative, genre-bending work. By providing a safe environment where risk-taking and collaboration are paramount, Ars Nova gives voice to a new generation of artists and audiences, pushing the boundaries of live entertainment by nurturing creative ideas into smart, surprising new work. 

Ars Nova provides an artistic home for emerging talent by cultivating a hive of  creative activity, both on stage—through developmental programs and performances—and off—through the support and cultivation of a thriving artist community. Read up on our various programs below! 

Ars Nova is a 501(C)(3) Not-For-Profit Organization and was founded in memory of Gabe Wiener.
