Culturally curious? We’ve got you. For each NYU Skirball production, we create extracurricular engagement resources to support the University’s larger academic mission. Whether you’re a student at NYU or a student of life, please explore our Prep School study guides, scholarly essays by NYU faculty, and online artists’ conversations to learn about our artists, their creative process, and all kinds of insights into the shows.



Follow us down the research rabbit hole: reading lists — context plus points of departure — along with links to media, relevant current events, and discussion questions to take with you after the show, whether you’re talking it out in classrooms or over coffee.

Indefinite Articles

(n.) “Typically, the indefinite article is used to introduce new concepts into a discourse.” (Oxford Living Dictionary). In other words: these are riffs on upcoming shows for your delectation, from some of NYU’s best and brightest.

Artist Office Hours

We’ve put together a collection of conversations between NYU Skirball artists and NYU faculty. Some of these are glimpses at ongoing dialogues between long-time collaborators and colleagues; some are first encounters; all are smart, funny, and interesting.
