Organization Information

Mission Statement

Nu Sass Productions strives to encourage women in all aspects of theater, especially in those roles traditionally dominated by men. Nu Sass seeks to offer women opportunities to expand the roles they take on in the theater and try new things. Nu Sass explores how putting female actors into roles originally written for men can change the overall experience for the audience. Above all, Nu Sass aims to create engaging, thought-provoking art while being a responsible local and global citizen.

Description

Nu Sass Productions was founded by Aubri O’Connor and Emily Todd in 2009 with the mission of encouraging women in all aspects of theater, especially those roles traditionally dominated by men. Nu Sass' first production was a gender swapped version of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead during the 2009 Capital Fringe Festival.

Nu Sass was nominated for the John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre Company at the 2017 Helen Hayes Award, and Mary Myers was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Play (Helen Production) for the Nu Sass' staging of Marx in Soho at the 2018 ceremony.
