NYTW's MARY JANE and More Among October's Qualifying Shows for Parity Productions

Theatre Production Company Parity Productions has released its monthly list of Qualifying Productions for October - their popular directory of New York City shows in which the individual creative teams include 50 percent 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 percent hiring standard in the form of social media, email blasts, PR support, and placement in their Qualifying Productions Directory.

"Last month we had over forty shows notify us that they were Qualifying Productions. We are excited by the outcome of the program and that more production teams are truly paying attention to the gender parity issues," says Artistic Director and Founder Ludovica Villar-Hauser.

To be listed in the Parity Productions Qualifying Productions Directory, each show must meet three criteria: 50 percent of the playwrights, directors, and designers working on the production must be women or transgender artists; shows must be full productions (design elements included) that run for at least two calendar weeks in a New York City venue; and there must be a minimum of six performances over the course of the two week period.

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, exclusive products, 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.
