New York IT Awards
We were hoping to be part of The New York Innovative Theatre Awards with The Hoodie Play.  The IT Awards were organized to bring
recognition to the great work being done in Off-Off-Broadway and help create a community base for the estimated 40,000 artists
working in the Off-Off-Broadway venue.  Click on the link above to learn more and to vote for us!  Click 'Vote' on the left and register,

The Voire Dire Project is the inaugural production of Cosmic Orchid.  It is an integrative project 

where four theatrical teams (playwright, actors and director) each develop a one-act play inspired

by a separate work of visual art.  It culminates in a production of the performances of those plays

with a corresponding exhibition of the art that influenced them.  

We hope to be in the process in early 2016!


Our ultimate community outreach goal is to provide support to women in the shelter system by

using improvisational theatre to guide them through their personal story, promoting healing and empowering themselves toward new beginnings.  As we move forward with our art, we hope to 

engage Theatre Artists committed to this service.
