“The way the characters’ stories are carefully created, presented, and interwoven, the audience believes that this crazy salad of a comedy could really happen,” – Lavender After Dark

“Briskly and sharply directed by Rosie Gunther, Sex Work/Sex Play occasionally feels like an adults-only sitcom, with a talented, energetic ensemble cast who know how to be funny.  All five performers are excellent.” – Lavender After Dark

“In a world of playwrights, directors, and performers who always feel the need to “play it safe”, Sex Work/Sex Play will prove that audiences are always eager for an unapologetically bold, raunchy, and provocative theater experience.  You’ll definitely “swipe right” for this production!” – Lavender After Dark

“No shortage of witty asides and comic twists.” — Thinking Theatre

“An amusing comedy that explores contemporary adults’ concerns about sex and relationships…the performers are all wonderful in their comic timing and troubled sincerity.” — Hi! Drama

“It is no surprise that ensures that the dialogue by award-winning Caytha Jennis ensures that no subject matter or scenario is ever awkward or taboo . . . she knows what she’s doing and you won’t be able to get enough.” — Theater Piazza



“Elisha is an excellent writer…Fishman effortlessly takes us on Anne’s horrific journey…it is her portrayal of Anne that gives the play its vibrant emotional core….this play may break your heart.” – Stage & Cinema

“An engaging performance…Anne Being Frank is a passionate, bold, and imaginative effort.” –  Front Row Center

“Elisha has written a refreshing new take on Anne Frank’s life…What gives Elisha’s play its power—aside from Fishman’s commanding, nuanced performance and Amanda Brooke Lerner’s incisive direction—are the imaginative details that, in 90 minutes, paint a portrait that is difficult to forget.” – Theatre Scene




“An enjoyable indulgence in nostalgia…Ms Borelli’s strong suit is her acting chops. She shines in the scenes with her son, Terry, and her friend Rock Hudson. All the male characters are played by David Beck, a talented and versatile performer. …    I would recommend it as a lesson in the golden years of Hollywood films, especially musicals.”  – High Drama

Beck is an admirable chameleon….[writer] Paul Adams gives the audience a chance to see this side of her life.”The Front Row Center

Broadway World Showcases Our Biggest New Work Series

QUOTED IN BROADWAY WORLD: Artistic Director Paul Adams shared his thoughts on the expanded festival: “Emerging Artists is celebrating our 29th season and it’s always been our mission to be a champion of new works. We understand how hard it is for artists after so many of our fellow theater companies were forced to close due to Covid. We wanted to give as many artists as possible the chance to see their work go from page to stage, and we had a record number of submissions. That’s why we decided to expand the festival from 3 to 4 weeks and showcase 70 artists’ new work, which is the largest number of shows we’ve presented since the festival’s inception in 2006.”
