2019 Gala Donations
Live & In Color (LAIC) develops new work for the stage that promotes and celebrates diversity. Emphasizing non-traditional casting, multi-ethnic participants, and bold theatricality, LAIC offers unique development opportunities for new plays and musicals that encourage dialogue among artists from a variety of cultures.
Live & In Color envisions an American Theatre where established and aspiring artists of color have generous opportunities to practice their craft, on- and offstage. In pursuit of this goal, LAIC will: -Provide a safe, beautiful space in Salem, CT where artists can gather to develop new works that give voice to under-represented communities; -Engage the communities of Salem, New York City and the American Theatre in dialogue, to advance the stories and artists associated with LAIC; -Offer youth opportunities to learn from leaders in the field, in creative and administrative capacities that support LAIC programs.
