Gloria: A Life; Signature Theatre’s By The Way, Meet Vera Stark; And Roundabout’s True West All Part Of This Month’s Qualifying Productions List From Parity Productions

NEW YORK, NY (February 1 , 2019) Theatre production company Parity Productions has released its monthly list of Qualifying Productions for February —their popular directory of New York City shows in which the individual creative teams have 50% of the positions filled with cis women and/or trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) artists (directors, designers, and playwrights).

Parity Productions is New York’s theatre company that is dedicated to developing and producing new work and committed to filling a minimum of 50% of the creative roles on their productions with cis women and/or trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) artists (playwrights, directors, and designers). In addition, part of their mission is to provide substantial promotional support to any full productions industry-wide that meet the 50% hiring standard in the form of social media, email blasts, PR support, and placement in their Qualifying Productions Directory. “In 2018 the program served 165 Qualifying Productions, 134 NYC theatre companies, and over 780 theatre artists. There are so many theatre companies that need and deserve support. We applaud those that practice a 50% hiring standard," says Artistic Director and Founder Ludovica Villar-Hauser.
2019 marks the second year of Parity Productions’ partnership with Show-Score. The two companies teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind partnership in support of a 50/50 industry hiring standard. If Qualifying Productions have 7 or more performances, they will also be featured on, the largest fan community for New York City theater. The two companies recently announced the next phase of their partnership to provide even more comprehensive marketing and promotional support for Parity's Qualifying Productions.

Criteria to be listed in the Parity Productions Qualifying Productions Directory: 50% of the creative roles on the production—playwrights, directors, and designers—must be filled by cis women and/or TGNC artists; must be full productions (with at least one designer distinct from playwright/director) with a minimum of six performances in a New York City venue.

Parity’s Qualifying Productions Program is part of their slate of advocacy programs that includes The Annual Parity Commission, The Women and Transgender Artists Database, and The Parity Store.

Through the generosity of The Sylvia Sleigh Endowment to Parity Productions, a select number of paintings by the renowned Welsh artist Sylvia Sleigh are now available for sale by Parity. The Parity Store funds Parity’s programming — including its Annual Parity Commission.
