Patricia McGregor is the new face of New York Theater. In 2022, she was named the artistic director of the New York Theater Workshop, which is a big deal when you think about it. The workshop is known as the birthplace of many great works, including “Rent.” She is credited for directing a load of world premieres such as Lights out, Nat King Cole and Grief, just to name a few. The St. Croix native was a freelance director in the city and a well-respected talent within the workshop before taking the helm at her current home theater. Now, she’s also part of a small but mighty group of Black women running one of the many non-profit theaters both in the Big Apple, and across the country.
