Manhattan Shakespeare Project
Manhattan's All-Female Shakespeare Company
To facilitate the growth of the female artist in a challenging, supportive, playful, and creative environment.
To create a diverse company of women where many worlds, cultures, backgrounds and ideas are represented as we explore the breadth and depth of the human condition.
To bring Shakespeare to underserved communities and develop our passion for theatre not only as an art form, but also as an educational tool.
To foster emerging female playwrights and voices in conjunction with exploring the theatrical masterpieces of William Shakespeare.
Manhattan Shakespeare Project is a bright new venture into the wonderful world of Shakespeare. We are graduate students based in the Columbia University theatre community, but our company also includes many professional women from all backgrounds.
Currently we are exploring how we can re-envision Shakespeare’s works to communicate to new generations, and new communities. We want to create vital and currently viable theatre focusing on gender constructs. What does it mean to use an all-female cast with scripts and characters that were originally written for all-male casts?
