Parity Productions Releases February List of Qualifying Productions

Theatre Production Company Parity Productions has released its monthly list of Qualifying Productions for February-their popular directory of New York City shows in which the individual creative teams have 50% of the roles 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 transgender artists (playwrights, directors, and designers). In addition, part of their mission is to provide substantial promotional support to other shows 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 152 productions and served 116 companies. And we expect to continue to expand this platform this year," says Artistic Director and Founder Ludovica Villar-Hauser.

February 2018 also marks the second month 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.

To be listed in the Parity Productions Qualifying Productions Directory, each show must meet three criteria: 50% of the creative roles on the production-playwrights, directors, and designers-must be filled by women and/or transgender artists; shows must be full productions (with at least one designer distinct from playwright/director) with a minimum of six performances in a New York City venue.

Parity's Qualifying Productions Program is one of their slate of advocacy programs that includes The Annual Parity Commission for Women and Transgender Playwrights, The Women and Transgender Artists Database and The Parity Store - a digital storefront that offers works of art, gift items, and professional services - many at a discount - to the industry and audiences. One out of every $10 the company makes from The Parity Store funds The Annual Parity Commission for Women and Transgender Playwrights.
