Encores Tomorrow Night! EstroGenius Closes Our 13th Year

And Scene! Almost. We have tonight and tomorrow. If you haven’t gotten to see us yet, you still have time. And if you want to spend the day and evening with us. All three

programs will be presented in order followed by Encores. Here’s the thing about Encores. One show from each program will not know that they are going up until all the votes are tallied after the final show of Program C.

So you still have time to have your say on who makes it to Encores. It is $1 a vote with all proceeds going to benefit those who were affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Women in Motion: Permission to Fail & I Would


One of the most enjoyable part of being the Marketing Director for the festival is seeing all the shows. On Wednesday night, I saw Women in Motion‘s two very contrasting pieces. Permission to Fail features Laurie and Bessie / Bessie and Laurie in matching hooded sweatsuits. However the hood part covers their faces. They perform their piece in blind synchronicity on a bare stage. In contrast,Rachel Cohen and Racoco Dance Productions’ I Would features six dancers who tell their story of independence and fortitude through the use of wood (it can stand alone and it is a strong substance).

There is one more performance on Saturday - NOVEMBER 17 at 6pm** (Note: FREE live  music prior to the performance)

Project Girl: Unplugged at the Estrogenius Festival

Our Project Girls have been very busy. Here’s a quick note on what they’ve been up to as well as information on their performances at Estrogenius Festival.

Thank you so much for your support and concern. As many of you know, our office in the East Village had no power and our theatre space in Brooklyn was up the street from some of the most severe flooding in the City. While some of our collective members in low lying areas of New York City and New Jersey have experienced severe damage to their homes and power outages, all of our girls are safe and sound.

Project Girls have been busy, despite our struggles. We helped to organize a food and clothing drive at our theatre space and are opening a new show curated by playwright Winter Miller this Saturday. Proceeds from the show will go to Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts so please come and bring all of your friends.

Project Girl: Unplugged
Staging the Revolution

cutting-edge new work to be debuted at Estrogenius Festival

Thursday November 15th @ 6pm
Friday November 16th @ 6pm
Tuesday November 27th @ 7pm

Donate Here to support Project Girl’s Hurricane Relief Fund

If you cannot attend, please consider a generous donation to directly support mental health recovery efforts for young people in New York City and New Jersey. We know from our experience during and after the World Trade Center disaster that these services are critical. Youth are particularly vulnerable to anxiety, post-traumatic stress, depression and substance abuse during times of distress. Those in need of immediate help should reach out to the Mental Health Association of NYC or call Disaster Distress Hotline 1-800-985-5990.

Take that Sandy!

Sincerely,
Ashley and Jessica

EstroGenius Opened Festival Style

What does that mean? Last night was very festive. There was food and drink; live music provided by chromatic stampede, Lee Goffin Bonenfant, and Kelly “Killy” Dwyer; old friends and new friends, 5 powerful one acts and much cheer.

The feel and love of Manhattan Theatre Source just travelled north as we settle in our new home for the next month. The coziness of 177 MacDougal didn’t dissipate when we had to find a new space. It transferred. And you can experience that through the art on the wall and voices of the talent on the stage.

We carry on tonight with:

Pre-Show Live Music at 5:30pm
Sola Voce at 6:00pm
EstroGenius 2012 Program B at 8:00pm
