WolfBrown's Research is Featured in the NEA and TYA/USA's Newly Released Report on Theater for Young Audiences 
The report, Envisioning the Future of Theater for Young Audiences, features research on the impact of theater for young audiences and identifies obstacles for achieving greater organizational stability. 


It includes findings from a five-year study that WolfBrown conducted with The New Victory to understand the range of cognitive, social, and emotional benefits young people experience when they attend live performance.

“Kids who get to see live performing arts and work with artists are more optimistic about what their future will be like than kids who are not....As you raise kids’ ability to think about lives other than their own, and simultaneously raise their ability to practice imaginative skills, you raise their ability to wonder ‘what if?’ and adjust their own hopefulness for their future.” -Lindsey Buller Maliekel, Director of Education/Public Engagement, New Victory Theater
