The Muse Project (Jocelyn Kuritsky, Producing Artistic Director) seeks to disrupt the imbalance of opportunity and ownership of work for women actors through the development of challenging, actor-driven theater works and focused research into their participation in American theater. The company shifts the theater paradigm through the empowerment of women actors as creators and content generators. With The Muse Project, actresses choose the role they want to play and the story they want to tell, and then a creative team is built around the actress's vision.

Partner organizations for The Muse Project include Abingdon Theatre Company, The Flea Theater, New Georges, The New Group, The Pit, The Tank, Theaterlab, and Torn Page. www.themuseprojectnyc.com.
