In 1999, the Resident Program was created. Now in its 23rd year, this program offers an artistic home to a select group of Indie Theater Artists, pooling together a great deal of talent and energy while focusing on their individuality as independent companies. Based on each company’s distinct needs, this program provides tangible support through rehearsal & performance space, as well as consulting, administrative, marketing, and artistic assistance
The Resident Program has provided a platform for many new playwrights to be published and produced nationally and internationally. Resident Alumni have gone on to tour all over multiple continents, are currently writing and acting on dozens of TV shows and movies, have been nominated for TONYs and OBIEs, and have won countless NYIT Awards.

Something from Abroad produces material from a variety of cultural backgrounds to bring stories from abroad and give them a voice in today’s America. We are a theater company started by a couple of “broads” from abroad. We are proud to promote art created by women. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for actors from all over the world to perform on a stage in New York. We tell the stories of our people and our struggles as immigrants. We embrace the differences that an international ensemble brings to the table, and we make this diversity our strength. Learn more about this company.
