Spicy Witch Production's Mission

To make theater that is a spring board for thought and conversation regarding societal and theatrical evolution. Spicy Witch Productions is committed to putting on professional and engaging performances in repertory: classical and contemporary pieces that explore the same story or theme. Focusing on females in theater, the shows may use gender-bending casting or slanted perspectives to highlight and/or question gender roles and traditional stories while allowing women to get onstage and play the male roles they've always wanted. The juxtaposition of contemporary pieces with classic pieces will act as a spring board for thought and conversation regarding societal and theatrical changes. With a love of New York that spreads well beyond Midtown, SWP strives to always bring audiences (and its actors) to theaters outside of the Theater District.
