New Light Theater Project (producer), founded by Sarah Norris and Michael Aguirre, is an ensemble-driven theater company that strives to capture the Little Theater Movement (artistry over commerce; producing new and classic works) in the NYC indie theater community. To accomplish this, New Lightplaces the ensemble at the center of the process, where all members, regardless of artistic role, bear weight and voice to the stories selected to tell. New Light devises and develops new work, brings classical texts and revivals to life, and creates a spirit of community for all theatrical collaborations. New Light illuminates other artists and companies through a network of shared resources, such as The Spotlight Series and Darkroom, while cultivating theatrical partnerships around the world. The company's last offering was Hal & Bee by Max Baker, a dark comedy about an aging hippie couple trying to hold on to their bohemian roots directed by Sarah Norris, March 10-31 at 59e59 Theaters. It will present The Hollower by Lisa Birkenmeier, a modern haunt-comedy exploring seventeenth century body witchcraft, directed by Kristy Dodson May 17 to June 9 at Access Theater.
