Songs from the Spectrum features performers across the autism spectrum- alongside Broadway greats and rock legends such as Lord Graham Russell of Air Supply and Jay Klaitz from Broadway's Getting the Band Back Together -singing songs about empowerment, identity, and the human condition.

EPIC can also be found in residence as Anchor Partners at The Flea, the prestigious downtown theater founded by Sigourney Weaver and others.

The EPIC Players (Empower, Perform, Include, Create) is a New York City neuro-inclusive theater company in founded in 2016 to provide performance opportunities for actors with developmental disabilities. EPIC uses the performing arts as a vehicle to empower artists with developmental disabilities while pioneering increased inclusion in the arts. Our mission is to breakdown social barriers, negative myths and stereotypes surrounding this previously marginalized minority. Working with people with and without disabilities, we hope to role model a new way to use performing arts to empower artists and communities to become change-makers in their fields.
