Bringing three one-woman plays (Mother Lode, I Won’t Be In On Monday, The Pink Unicorn) to New York City for a total of 24 performances in two weeks’ time was challenging, exhausting, joyful, educational, and an unqualified success. What did we learn?
Collaborating with agencies like Show Score and Parity Productions was invaluable in promoting, and filling seats.
Show-Score is like a Rotten Tomatoes for theater. They make it easy to discover Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway shows geared to your taste. They collect and organize critic reviews for all shows, and give their members a fun way to review shows themselves.
Here’s how off the WALL ranked:
THE PINK UNICORN 89
MEMBERS SAY: Great acting, Relevant, Great writing, Absorbing, Thought-provoking
MOTHER LODE 82 (with two rankings of 100!)
MEMBERS SAY: Great acting, Absorbing, Resonant, Entertaining, Funny
MEMBERS SAY: Great acting, Clever, Absorbing, Entertaining, Quirky
Parity Productions advocates for gender parity in theater. Their Qualifying Productions Program provides support for shows that meet a 50% hiring standard (i.e., created and designed by teams composed of at least 50% female or transgender artists). All three of our NYC shows were named Qualifying Productions, and promoted as such free of charge. Thank you, Parity Productions!
