Hill, who founded the non-profit Off-Broadway company in 1983, has fostered over 600 staged readings and workshops, including Men On The Verge Of A Hispanic Breakdown and Minor Demons, which moved to commercial runs Off-Broadway. Hill will also receive a Mayoral Proclamation for her commitment to the arts community and support of diverse cultural offerings for 25 years. Event co-chairs are Marjorie Federbush and Ted Terry.
Urban Stages’ mission is to discover, nurture and produce exceptional new works by artists of diverse cultural backgrounds. Works are culled from an open submission process and have gone onto enjoy lives regionally and internationally. Urban Stages most recently presented Joe Iconis' acclaimed work ReWrite. Seth Greenland's Jerusalem will receive its New York premiere at Urban Stages in March.
Tickets, beginning at $125, are available by phoning (212) 421-1380. For further information, visit urbanstages.org.
