A handful of stars and over 100 performing arts organizations, independent artists, poets, puppeteers and film makers will join forces May 22 to 24 in the Lower East Side Festival of the Arts, available virtually on the website (www.theaterforthenewcity.net) of its presenting organization, Theater for the New City (TNC). The 2020 festival, themed "Renaissance: Arts Alive 25," is dedicated to essential workers: the frontline professionals who preserve our daily lives.
There will be three days of theater and theater-related events, from May 22 to May 24. Offerings will include both live and recorded material from artists presently residing on the Lower East Side, arts groups performing there, prominent writers and artists whose work has dealt directly with the Lower East Side experience, and plays written especially for this festival.
