We’ve come a long way in the 5 years since we were born in the back of a porn studio. From flying the coop and wandering the mean streets of New York, to finding our current home as a resident company of Playwrights Horizons, MTF has continued to serve musical theatre artists by creating spaces to collaborate outside the pressures of critical and commercial success. Our work dismantles oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation – through powerful and joyful story in song.

What is this ticket structure?
In order to make this gathering and celebration accessible to all in our community, we offer a sliding scale to ensure inclusive participation – with special experiences and perks at different levels to show our gratitude! All proceeds from this benefit goes towards programs that develop innovative and paradigm shifting artists who are changing our culture with their powerful work. This radical act of the sliding scale allows us to use this birthday party to bring folks together to celebrate and support one another.
We know that income levels aren’t the sole guide to disposable income and that we all have different pressures on us, like family size, medical and student loan debt. We offer these as simple and imperfect suggestions. Generous supporters of all income levels have kept MTF alive through the years. Please give accordingly to what will feel GREAT TO YOU, where that act of generosity will expand the heart.
