The Theater’s mission is to provide a nurturing, collaborative environment for artists. Leveraging people, space and technology, we create and present challenging and dynamic art.
More Than a Building
The New Hazlett is more than just a building. It’s an incubator for artists.
We listen to what artists need and allow them to think about the big picture without worrying about how pieces of the puzzle – technology, logistics, personnel, money – will come together. We focus on their vision, and offer fresh ideas about their work without diluting it. Nothing’s off the table. No idea is too crazy. Great art can come from that.
In order to nurture the arts, we take time almost every single day to meet with the people who make it. From the moment artists walk through the door and meet us, we let them know we’re here to help them create.
We embrace a broad range of artists and arts organizations, hosting diverse audiences and encouraging the success of Pittsburgh’s performing arts community.
We create an energetic arena for arts events and community dialogue in our Northside neighborhood and beyond.
We seek out collaboration in order to allow arts organizations and individual artists to pursue their own missions, present their own programs and connect with their own – and new – audiences.
