pixeltracker

EPIC Players Inclusion Company started their virtual performance series, EPIC Sings for Autism, after their spring/summer performances were put on hold due to the COIVD-19 Pandemic. The neuro-diverse theater company based in New York City created the series so their autistic performers could have a creative outlet and find some normalcy during this time.

Their newest virtual performance video includes the duet A Whole New World from the Broadway Musical Aladdin and features EPIC company member Jordan Boyatt and Telly Leung, who played the title role of Aladdin on Broadway. The song is accompanied by composer and lyricist Scott Evan Davis, who just wrote and composed the new musical Indigo, which workshopped on Broadway this past fall and featured Betsy Wolfe and Telly Leung.

In an effort to spread some much-needed joy and inspiration, EPIC's company members,' which feature artists on the spectrum, will continue to share a series of virtual performances throughout the Spring. Many of the video's will be in collaborations with Broadway talent. The company would also like to connect with additional Broadway talent who may be interested in working on a virtual performance with EPIC. Interested individuals can contact Aubrie Therrien at aubrie@epicplayersnyc.org.

Individuals living with autism and other neuro-diversities have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has shuttered many of their essential resources, programs and supports and left them even more vulnerable to anxiety and distress.
