The Program are a roving trio of arts journalists and thinkers who devote themselves to making great theater accessible to all through background chat, cool essays and questions answered. They are TIME OUT NEW YORK’s Theater Editor David Cote, the arts critic and professor Helen Shaw, and the playwright and scholar Jeffrey Jones. A big hit when FEED paired up with them last for Young Jean Lee’s LEAR, we are delighted to bring them back so that they may contextualize and describe the wild, wacky and epically mundane world of NTOK.
