New York Musical Theatre Festival Celebrates 10 Years



July 1, 2013 - Ten years after its creation, the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) is still the largest event of its kind in the world, and this summer, from July 8 to July 28, dozens of original musical productions will premiere in theatres throughout Manhattan.

The NYMF was created in order to “introduce new shows, new perspectives and new blood into the musical theatre canon” and has served as a launching pad for a multitude of musical productions that have gone on the win awards and reach audiences throughout the world. Next to Normal, which ran at the NYMF in 2005, went on to win three Tony Awards and a Pulitzer.

Today, the festival can boast having premiered more than 350 shows with a total attendance of more than 300,000 people. This past year, the festival won a Drama Desk Award in recognition of its contributions to theatre.
