What Does it Take to Run Our Qualifying Productions Program?
We devote 75-80 hours per month to ensuring that theatre-going New Yorkers know about the most recent Qualifying Productions on and off Broadway. This includes extensive ongoing correspondence with artistic directors and producers, graphic design, social media, and press outreach - all in the name of providing free promotion to productions that are helping to further gender parity.
