Parity Productions Announces Monthly List of Qualifying Productions

Article Pixel

Theatre Production Company Parity Productions has released its monthly list of Qualifying Productions for September -their popular directory of New York City shows in which the individual creative teams have 50% of the positions filled with women and transgender artists (directors, designers, and playwrights).

Parity Productions is New York's theatre company that is dedicated to developing and producing new work and committed to filling a minimum of 50% of the creative roles on their productions with women and trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) artists (playwrights, directors, and designers). In addition, part of their mission is to provide substantial promotional support to any full productions industry-wide that meet the 50% hiring standard in the form of social media, email blasts, PR support, and placement in their Qualifying Productions Directory. "In 2017, our Qualifying Productions Program promoted served 116 companies and promoted 152 productions. In 2018, we are on track to surpass that - and we're thrilled. There are so many productions that need and deserve support. We applaud those that practice the 50% hiring standard," says Artistic Director and Founder Ludovica Villar-Hauser.

2018 marks the first year of Parity Productions' partnership with Show-Score. The two companies have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind partnership in support of a 50/50 industry hiring standard. If Qualifying Productions have 7 or more performances, they will also be featured on Show-score.com, the largest fan community for New York City Theater.
