The Ingenue Project

Rude Grooms and NYC Women’s Art Collective LLC present The Ingenue Project: a one-night-only, immersive, multidisciplinary performance exploring the expression of Shakespeare’s ingenues by applying gender-fluidity and nontraditional exhibition to the text. Familiar characters find new life re-interpreted for a modern, youthful, and LGBTQ+ audience.
