Woodstock: 2023 Gala


On Monday, March 13, 2023, we gathered at The Edison Ballroom to honor Thomas Bradshaw, John Greenwood and Frank Marshall with the Mimi and Michael Mendelson Award for Outstanding Commitment to Theater.

The New Group’s Annual Gala supports our mission to develop and produce powerful, contemporary theater that is adventurous, stimulating and most importantly “now”, a true forum for the present culture. The event provides critical funding for our programs, including New Group/New Works — our signature development program for new plays and musicals — and our free theater education programs for middle and high school students in New York City.
