THE BELLAGIO FOUNTAIN HAS BEEN KNOWN TO MAKE ME CRY Written by Renee Philippi HERE Arts Center 145 6th Avenue NY, NY
In a world created entirely of paper, in which women and water are metaphors for one another, this heartwarming new work explores themes of conservation and regeneration, and at its heart, our eternal quest for happiness.
PROMISING Written by Terry Berliner Beckett Theatre on Theatre Row 410 West 42nd Street NYC
Local politician David Carver's meteoric rise has caught the eye of the heavy political hitters in NYC and beyond. But the burgeoning career of the charismatic campaigner is threatened by a startling accusation. PROMISING is at once a scathingly funny and shocking indictment of our current political climate.
This series on HowlRound.com explores what needs to happen right now—in this precipitous moment—in order to profoundly, permanently expand the theatrical community's views and visions of women, both onstage and in every aspect of production.

Cheryl King, director of Stage Left Studio, NYC, and longtime LGBTQ advocate, has returned to NYC from her tour of the US, and has re-assembled her team of actors and activists for Gender - A Performance Project.

The 10-person cast is diverse- including actors of multiple ethnicities, ages and gender identifications.
