Theater 2020, Asteria,
Theater 2020, Inc., Visions for a New Millennium is dedicated to producing diverse artist presentations, including classic and contemporary plays and musicals for a 21st Century audience, concerts, readings, and special events, and to providing a nurturing atmosphere for both emerging artists and seasoned professionals. We are dedicated to reaching out to the community and to producing quality theater at affordable prices, utilizing established professionals and fostering young artists as they emerge into the theatrical mainstream, with a particular emphasis on providing more opportunities for women in theater.
A professional theater based in Brooklyn Heights, Theater 2020 produces in Brooklyn, Manhattan and elsewhere, including the under-served Greene County in New York's Catskill Mountains. They present everything from classic theater to contemporary satire, with forays into musicals and light opera, making them immediate to modern audiences using both innovative and traditional approaches. We believe live performance is a vital part of a healthy culture and that it is through theater that audiences are engaged dynamically in today's issues and in perpetual questions of the human condition.
Through our many audience outreach programs, we offer free and deeply discounted tickets because we believe theater must be for everyone, and no one should be deprived of the experience due to economic status. Through our educational initiatives we are firmly committed to the idea that today's youth is tomorrow's audience, and we work with educators to provide opportunities for students as interns and assistants.
