“I thought it would be very fun, and I don’t think I was wrong in any sense of the word.” - Longan, age 9
Previewing our newest Playmaking production, we have a conversation between brothers Emmanuel and Logan. Emmanuel joined the Project seven years ago and Logan is one of the latest batch of writers about to make their debut on the Project stage. We’re also highlighting a performance by Jon-Michael Reese of Christian’s song “I Am A Pooper Hero,” with music by David Andrés Trujillo-Tapias from last year’s Songmaking concert. Jon-Michael can be seen performing in Logan’s play this weekend.

A production of The 52nd Street Project, a non-profit arts education organization working with children (ages 9 - 18) in Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan. The Project brings kids together with adult artists to create original work for the theater. The PROJcast offers a behind-the-scenes view of the work of the Project as the kids create and explore theater as well as other art forms, such as song, dance, poetry, film and more. Long term-mentoring relationships form the basis of much of the Project’s work, and these episodes will feature reporting, stories, performances and interviews with kids and adults.
The 52nd Street Project is supported by The Altman Foundation, & The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
