Performance Dates
Opening Performance

In this exciting world premiere for young adults based on the chapbook Beastgirl and Other Origin Myths by New York Times bestselling author ELIZABETH ACEVEDO, playwright C. QUINTANA, composer JANELLE LAWRENCE, and director REBECCA APARICIO bring this collection of folkloric poems to the stage with music. The play explores the mythological and geographic identities of three first generation American sisters. From the Dominican Republic to an apartment rooftop in New York City, Beastgirl considers what it means to walk the world as “beastly” beings and how the myths that make us can be both blessing and birthright.
