Musical Theater Factory is thrilled to welcome you to our virtual salon hosted by Troy Anthony, with special guest and Makers Cohort II member, é boylan. During this salon we want to invite musical theater makers of excellence to present work that is dismantling oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation through powerful and joyful story in song.
During the virtual salon, we welcome artists from across the nation (and around the world) to perform their new and radical music theater work live from their homes, or to share a video of a short performance. Each artist will have about 5 minutes to share.
é boylan (they/them/theirs) is a NYC based director, creator, and composer developing new work towards trans liberation. Recent/Upcoming projects: “Soft Butter” (Ars Nova, MTF), “Waafrika 123” (National Queer Theater), “Container” (Trans Lab/WP/Public Theater, Rattlestick), “Femmebodys, or: the way we leave” (NAMT Award, MTF), “Memorial” (The Lark, LPAC), and “The Rite of Spring” (American Theater Company). é has incubated work with resident artists at LCT3/Lincoln Center, Manhattan Theatre Club, BAM, the O’Neill, Joe’s Pub, Birdland, Studio Theatre, and elsewhere. A graduate of The University of Chicago and NTI, é has served as 2019 Trans Lab Fellow, 2019-20 MTC Directing Fellow, and currently serves as member of Roundabout Theatre Company’s Directors Group, as well as a Resident Playwright at Lincoln Center Theater.
We ask that everyone takes special care in uplifting and supporting each other. This is inclusive of only offering criticism when it is asked for and being respectful to gender identities. We seek to dismantle oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation – by participating, you agree to respect one another. In the event of unintentional harm, we support active engagement in harm reduction.
You do not have to share in order to attend. Please register to share or to participate as a supportive audience member. We can’t wait to see you there!
Please Note: “I Want to Share” tickets will close at 8pm on the Wednesday prior to the event, and “I Want to Watch” tickets will close at 6pm on the evening of the event.
