If there was a way that the company could work year-round (despite the challenges of climate on the East Coast), that would be wonderful. Also, it would be great to have the roles within the artistic staff expand--again, so that more of this style of theater could be produced for the public. Mr. Sanderson´s commitment and investment in Gorilla Rep is extraordinary, but I´d love to see how the company could expand if there were 2 or 3 others sharing the responsibilities of directing, producing, managing.

What is unique about this organization?
They provide high-quality productions of Shakespeare in public spaces in New York on an ongoing basis, for free. This alone is noteworthy. They also tend to have an aesthetic that is "poor" in the sense that production values (set, lighting, costumes) are minimalized, and the emphasis is placed on the actor, their bodies & voices, and the words & story of the playwright.
