Production Description

We are committed to empowering a diverse group of creative artists, especially the youth, whose work is designed to educate, entertain and help revitalize urban communities. Our most recent ensemble collaborative work includes "Shakespeare High," executive produced by Kevin Spacey and "The We and the I" directed by Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind").
