Review for Tennessee Women's Theater Project, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since the very first production, Tennessee Women's Theater Project (TWTP) has exceeded all expectations. From the choice of plays, the casting, direction and all production values - the company continues to produce gem after gem. What also continues to stand out is that the talented, committed people TWTP brings to the table - actors, technicians, designers and volunteers, all understand and are proud to embrace and advance the TWTP mission "giving voice to women through theater arts." Also worth mentioning is the annual rite of spring entitled "Women's Work." For three weeks, TWTP offers a stage and an audience to artists of every genre - drama, music, dance, poetry, visual arts... Every performance is different, and the $40 Women's Work Festival Pass would be a bargain at twice the price. Finally, I think the founder of TWTP, Maryanna Clarke deserves special recognition for her social consciousness and for her commitment to making live theater an experience everyone can enjoy. TWTP is exceedingly generous with the community, providing inumerable complimentary tickets to underserved segments of community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the number of individuals who have experienced "live" theater for the first time in their lives.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that the commitment of the founder, Maryanna Clarke and her husband Chris. Passionate, compassionate, dedicated and generous - their commitment to the mission is infectious.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

gifted, creative and giving people who believe in the mission of TWTP.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world!

Ways to make it better...

the audience had been larger. Actors and audiences work hand in hand. It has been painful to see such talented folks work so hard for so few audience members.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting Nashville audiences to have the courage to attend a performance and experience a production other than a touring show or Broadway musical.
