Mildred's Umbrella is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to growing Houston's theatre community and empowering women through the performing arts. Since our inception in 2001, we have employed local artists to aid us in that goal. Our priority is to achieve gender parity in the theatrical arts, striving to promote the work and provide opportunities to playwrights, actors, designers, directors and crew members who are local artists, with a focus on women (not excluding the men) in new works never seen in Houston. Our primary contribution to this goal is offering Houston audiences innovative theatrical works unavailable anywhere else. We strive to make each production a unique experience, both in the creative execution and the choice of material.

Reviews for Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company

Rating: 5 stars  

Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company (MU), named for one of Gertrude Stein's intriguing poems, produces cutting edge theater. Working with local talent they provide a professional, emotive theater experience. MU chooses thought provoking plays that challenge the audience to question modern life, reality and their own dysfunctionality head on. In theater's best tradition of making us think - Mildred's Umbrella excels.
