"The show as a whole was honestly fantastic! The whole of the cast knew how to deliver Shakespeare in a fluid, believable manner. On top of that, every performance is delivered with a decided style and flair that truly speaks of the talent at hand. There is also a very clear and positive message of acceptance and equality in Ripple Effect's interpretation that avoids being heavy handed."-Joseph Conway. Outerstage.
"The performers delve into the piece wholeheartedly, while telling the story in the most compelling way." Jacqueline Paladino, Reviewer.
We have a spotlight on social-injustces. We take on themes such as gay rights, violence towards women, drug abuse, worker rights, hunger, spousal abuse, political challenges, family love, romantic love, etc. With our productions, we are commited to raising pivotal questions and starting a dialogue amongst audiences.
With each production, a significant percentage of our box office proceeds are donated to a Human Rights Organization that coincides with the subject-matter of the show. Our production of William Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew," raised funds for Paradigm Shift. Our production of Robert Anderson's "Tea and Sympathy," raised funds for The Trevor Project. Our Fall of 2012 production of "Waiting for Lefty," and raised funds for The League of Women Voters of New York City. Our production of William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night," raised funds for the organization, Freedom to Marry.
Our readings are FREE to the PUBLIC and raised awareness for an advocacy organization that correlates with the theme of the production.
Our Upcoming Production of Mark Schultz's DEATHBED asks the questions, "Is there a correct way to react to the news that a loved-one is terminally ill? What is the best reaction? How do we support those dealing with grief?"
Opening Night: April 21st.
Run: April 21st-28th.
Ticket Reservations: TBA
A significant percentage of Box Office proceeds go to
Gilda's Club of NYC.
