Late into The Marsh’s Holiday Party last week once the planned festivities were over, right before clean up, I sat down with staff members. They were talking about what it was like to work at a woman-led organization. How it was different. How they felt empowered and supported.
I was inspired and grateful to hear this.
And alas, on our stages we have two woman-inspired holiday shows.
Last night Unique Derique opened FOOL LA LA Over The Rainbow. Packed with adorable, excited, interacting kids, the show opened with a joyous video tribute to Unique’s grandmother, mother, daughter, and granddaughter. Fool La La matinees run before and after Christmas.
Brian Copeland’s THE JEWELRY BOX is a young boy’s tribute to his mother as he struggles to giver her the perfect Christmas gift. Final 2 shows Friday & Saturday.
In January, we are extending Diane Barnes’ MY STROKE OF LUCK and opening Jill Vice’s A FATAL STEP, a noir told through the eyes of a femme fatale.
Join us. We need you. We are your theater.
We are inherently femenist. We support issues of immigration in our shows and our youth programs. We support Black Lives Mater, civil rights, and these times with shows like Brian Copeland’s NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN, Al Letson’s SUMMER IN SANCTUARY, Echo Brown’s BLACK VIRGINS ARE NOT FOR HIPSTERS. Don Reed’s KIPLING HOTEL, Dan Hoyle’s THE REAL AMERICANS, Kate Robards’ AINT THAT RICH and so many more.
We are the keep-our-voice t the forefront, the keep-our community heard, non profit.
So please join us in keeping The Marsh, its artists, its staff, and you, our community, supported and vibrant during these times.
Happy holidays to all! And here’s to luminescent light.
In love and gratitude,
