Time Out says
A vintage gem tucked in among King Street's cafés and antique shops
Tatty décor and a general air of wear-and-tear only add to the charm of one of the longest running theatre companies in NSW. Established in 1932 as a workers’ theatre, the New now has a wide remit ranging across classics, neglected Australian repertoire, contemporary European and American work, gay theatre and musicals. Productions under the auspices of the New Theatre company are amateur, in the sense that the actors are unpaid.
