* Collaborative Arts Project 21 (CAP21) was founded in 1993 by executive artistic director Frank Ventura, "to create new works for the theatre, to develop new talent and build new audiences." CAP21 has developed and/or presented 180 new plays and musicals by nearly 280 writers including numerous Off and Off-Off Broadway productions. These include The Immigrant (2000), Beach Radio (2002), Killing Louise (2003), Waiting For My Man (2004), Six of One (2005) and The 60's Project (2005).
CAP21 has created an extensive new play and musical development process which culminates in workshop productions like this one. CAP21's new home for its new work development process is called The Shop.
