CRACKSKULL ROW and More Among Parity's March Qualifying Productions

Theatre Production Company Parity Productions has released its monthly list of Qualifying Productions for March - their directory of New York City shows in which the individual creative teams include 50% 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 hiring a minimum of 50% women and transgender playwrights, directors, and designers on each show they produce. 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.

"We are absolutely thrilled at the response to our Qualifying Productions program - especially Off-Broadway, where there is less opportunity for paid promotional support," says Artistic Director and Founder Ludovica Villar-Hauser. "Now more than ever, Parity Productions is committed to providing this free service to help productions by artists, producers, and theatre companies that are demonstrating a commitment to gender parity."
