🖊️ JAG JOINS THE DRINKING GOURD: BLACK WRITERS AT WORK INITIATIVE
It is with immense pride and a forward-looking spirit that we at JAG Productions announce an exhilarating new chapter in our journey. We have been handpicked to join the inaugural cohort of a transformative initiative — The Drinking Gourd: Black Writers at Work.
🎬 BEHIND THE SCENES OF "MEN LIKE US"
We are thrilled to announce the completion of filming for our inaugural digital series, "MEN LIKE US" this past October! Over a span of two weeks in New York, a dedicated team comprising more than 60 production staff, crew, and actors came together to shoot four captivating episodes.
JAG ANNUAL REPORT
We are excited to share our annual report with you as we look back on the last year. Although the year has presented many challenges, including the unanticipated loss of access to two of our regular venues, our many successes and the love and support from our community allow us to move forward with resiliency and a dedication to fostering Black and Black queer creativity.
THE IMPACT OF LOSING THEATRE ON THE HILL
It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the significant impact of losing Theatre on the Hill. The absence of this summer staple has disrupted our cadence and affected our ability to have the impact in our community that we know we are capable of. The financial repercussions of this loss have been severe. It's brought us to the brink, where we've had to confront the possibility of shutting our doors permanently. However, we stand firm in our resolve. We will not surrender to these challenging circumstances.
JAG SELECTED AS COMPANY IN RESIDENCE AT NYTW
JAG Productions will join New York Theatre Workshop’s (NYTW) Companies-in-Residence program for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 seasons as the first non-New York City-based company. As part of the residency, NYTW will provide artistic and institutional support and act as a second home to JAG in the city, while JAG looks to magnify its scope and presence in the theater world.
