New York Shakespeare Exchange (NYSX) offers innovative theatrical programming that explores what happens when contemporary culture is infused with Shakespearean poetry and themes in unexpected ways. Providing fresh points of entry to the work so that modern audiences will be exposed to the intrinsic power of Shakespeare, NYSX’s goal is to encourage an enthusiastic appreciation of classical theater and to expand the reach of the art form within new and existing audiences. New York Shakespeare Exchange premiered in spring 2010 as part of the HEREstay residency program at HEREArts with The One Man (Two Man (not quite)) Hamlet by Kevin Brewer. NYSX’s second season concluded with the successful production of The Life and Death of King John, universally praised by both critics and audiences for its innovation, creativity, and high quality.
