Hit Toronto Show WE THE MEN Arrives In New York

A brand new critically acclaimed hit show from Toronto (The birthplace of Broadway hits Come From Away & Drowsy Chaperone) comes to New York for one night only.

Exploring the private and real conversations happening right now between men as they investigate whether the sexes are coming closer together or moving further apart.? In 2017 show co-creator and director Tracey Erin Smith took 54 women on the Soulomobile, Soulo Theatre's storytelling bus, to the Women's March on Washington and now feels the need to check in on how men are doing since the evolutionary movement.

This brand new and groundbreaking show from the award-winning SOULO Theatre is an outrageous comedy where 8 women walk in the shoes of men in an attempt to capture the state of men in North America.

The script is based on REAL conversations with REAL men exploring the backlash towards the #metoo movement while sharing a few of their own #metoo stories. With a culturally and artistically diverse cast from Nigerian, Pakistani, Indonesian, Jewish and LGBTQ backgrounds the story brings together 8 'men' (women who have been theatrically transformed into men) for a weekend of beers, bonfires, spilling the beans and a game of Twister.

THE CAST of WE THE MEN are:

Savannah Binder, Jacquie Dawe, Rachel Brophy, Mercy Cherian, Sunday Muse, Sundance Nagrial, Silvi Santoso

Co-Created and Directed by: Tracey Erin Smith

Assistant Director: Neta Jeffery

Presented by Toronto's Award-Winning SOULO THEATRE.

SOULO Theatre is the brainchild of award-winning (Broadway World Award) actor, director, writer and dramaturg Tracey Erin Smith. Through SOULO, Tracey has created and directed dozens of show with professional and non-professional actors alike, helping people transform raw material from their lives into creative personal storytelling performances. Tracey's DUDE FOR A DAY - DRAG KING WORKSHOP is an ongoing Toronto favourite, inspiring women to find their "masculine" strengths and privileges through often crude behaviour, facial hair and mansplaining. Now, the workshop has grown into a fully-fledged production, with 10 women (playing men) from a variety of backgrounds creating a laugh out loud satirical show based on real conversations with men. It's a unique approach to bridging the gender gap.
