Lacivious Something, Women's Project's most recent production, is a shining example of their dedication to producing new, exciting dramatic works. Politically charged and poetic, the play and its performers tackled difficult situations in fresh ways. Their productions are, without fail, insightful, clever, and dynamic. Their work is, without exception, full of surprises and exciting discovery. The Women's Project's commitment to developing and producing new work by women playwrights, directors and producers is one of the most important things going on in theater today.
Women's Project has always produced thought-provoking, worthy pieces by amazing women playwrights, up-and-coming as well as past/established. With female playwrights, directors, and producers still quite under-represented in the theatre community, it is very crucial that an organization like Women's Project thrives for years to come and continues to shine light on the brilliant pieces produced by female artists.
Lascivious Something was thought-provoking, intriguing, and completely original. The performances were complex and multi-faceted. The script was rich with poeticism, wit, and humor and the plot was beautifully tangled and complex. I am so impressed with the outstanding work that has been and continues to be produced by the Women’s Project. Unafraid to push the envelope, the Women’s Project never fails to deliver an extraordinary experience! If you want a riveting night filled with emotion, sensuality, and a beautifully woven story with incredible heart-wrenching performances, the Women’s Project is the place to go to!
I have been very impressed with the numerous productions I have seen at their theatre. The shows are always well produced, include great talent and include edgy, sometimes controversial topics and themes that really challenge the audience. I have also attended a few of their fundraising functions, which are always very well planned and executed - and they're always a lot of fun. Well done Women's Project.
I find all their productions intensely thought provoking, and refreshingly varied in their themes. I admire the mission of the Women's Project. The project is well run and I have happily become a VIP member to ensure my ongoing involvement.
I've been to all the main stage productions for the last couple of years - most recently Smudge; and I'm seeing Lacivious Something tomorrow night. WP's plays have covered a huge range of subjects and topics, but they are consistently thoughtful, intelligent and entertaining, and often very funny. As an organization, I've found WP to be well-run and it has a great membership progam.
I have attended the three most recent productions, and all of them were amazing evenings of theater! I recommend Women's Project regularly to local friends for the amazing stories that they share.
Lascivious Something was thoroughly entertaining. The actors displayed great passion in presenting such as an intricate story. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. Great work!
I haven't been disappointed once by the Women's Project. I'm always extremely impressed by the talent they hire and the scripts they produce. The Women's Project allow vibrant, realistic characters and multifaceted worlds to come into existence on the stage. I have been entertained and enlightened at their hands.
Interning with Women's Project has been a great entry into professional theater experience. I have received more and more interesting and important projects that benefit the organization, allowing me to really make a difference in what's happening around the WP office. I've also gotten to see a WP show since I started my internship; Lascivious Something. It was an interesting and powerful production, with many strengths. I learned a lot from seeing both the backstage and onstage aspects of professional theater production.
I have seen several shows at the Women's Project, and they have been fabulous. I love that I can go see a great show on Friday night for jusr $20. The staff are always incredibly friendly and helpful, which of course adds to the experience. The latest show, "Lascivious Somthing," is one of the best yet. I can't wait to see what comes next!
Women's Project is an amazing theatre. Its mission is to produce and promote theater created by women. In my experience, it is one of the only places devoted to mentoring and developing emerging women theatre artists. It does this with passion, artistry, intelligence and not enough resources. I am lucky to be a Producer in the WP Lab program. This has given me the opportunity to network with other Lab members including producers, directors and playwrights. Last season funds were available to produce a site-specific production. There are monthly forums and I have two potential projects in development through the connections I have made here.
I have recently discovered Women's Project and what a discovery it has been. Both Or, and Smudge, two very different plays, were well written, directed and acted. I can't wait for the rest of the season and for seasons to come. I'm hooked!
As a New York theatre goer and supporter, as well as working in the Arts professionally, I find the quality of the Women's Project to exceed expectations. I have been following their repertoire for the last 15 years. Their mission statement encompasses what all theatre should strive for- to develop and refine the works of new writers and producers. WP gives women an opportunity to become a more prominent voice in the industry, that historically has been a challenge for female artists. I look forward to what the future holds for the Women's Project.
Women's Project, by far, offers the most innovative and stimulating theatre in New York. The works are thoughtful, provocative and extremely well produced. Their latest play, Smudge, was chilling to the bone. I just loved it!
Women's Project has filled a void for over 25 years by providing a home and extraordinary opportunities for new and talented women playwrights. It has consistently offered crearive opportunities on and off stage for professionals and students alike. It has brought a unique quality of theatre to New Yorkers and visitors who yearn for origial, fulfilling theatrical experiences in the theatre - at prices they can afford
My interests are in training women to be playwrights, directors and producers. This is what the Women's Project is dedicated to and does with such style, grace and tenacity. I am dedicated to this marvelous organization. Just look at the brilliant productions being produced under the careful supervision of Julie Crosby. I have the good fortune to be vice Chair of the Board for the last year and very proud to be associated with it.
The work done at the Women's Project is exraordinary! Such talent and dedication. The shows are intriguing and always beautifully acted and directed. Wish more people would find this jewel of a theatre and then enjoy the superb productions and the ongoing attention to supporting women playwrights and directors. NYC is blessed to have the WP housed here and Julie Crosby at the helm as Artistic Director. Lucy Martin Gianino
I've been on the Board for over 6 years, the last two years as Chair of the Board. Instrumental in choosing Julie Crosby for the Producing Artistic Director position. Since Julie has been in charge, the plays we produced have received consistently good, sometimes great reviews. Our last two plays "Or," and "Smudge" both got outstanding reviews from The New York Times. "Smudge" was also a Time Out pick. Media sources have said that Women's Project is "on a roll".
The quality of the stage presentations has taken a major leap under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Julie Crosby. The shows tackle the major issues of our day and Women's Project has show that it can provoke and entertain. And, while many theater companies around the country, Women's Project has increased its number of mainstage productions by 50%. Add to that that voices coming out of Women's Project's producers, playwrights and directors labs, Women's Project just may be the nurturing some of the most exciting women theatre artists on the horizon.
