Anything You Can Do Promo!
With Gabrielle Mirabella, Producer
It started as a fundraiser...
I was looking for a way to pay off my "non-tuition fees" as I headed to NYU Tisch's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program.
What's a "non-tuition fee"?
I have no idea, but I still had to pay it.
So, I gathered some of the most talented female-identifying performers I had worked with over the past decade, called up some amazing composers and, you guessed it...
We put on a show!
After the success of our inaugural concert we quickly realized that we had a conversation,
"Where are the leading roles for women on stage?
and a community.
Our goal at AYCD is this:
More LEADING female-narratives on the musical-theatre and opera stages.
Join us, use us, help us.
This cannot be solved by one person alone.

"There are more female actors than there are male in musical theatre and fewer roles, and not by a little. The ratio of male to female roles in musical theatre is shockingly unbalanced. Even some of the great iconic roles in the musical theatre cannon: Evita, Aldonza, and Mary Magdalene (in Evita, Man of La Mancha, and Jesus Christ Superstarrespectively), are in shows where almost every other role is played by a man. Musicals that are heavily cast with women, like Nine or Company, may give a lot of female actors work, but the show is still all about the man."- Harmony France's article in HuffPost (click here to read
