Ben was asked to co-direct at WOW Cafe Theatre, a theatre collective for women and trans-gendered people for over 30 years in New York City. It was a tremendous honor, since men are rarely invited to create work at WOW.
This all-female production looked at Christopher Marlowe's interrogation of sexual norms, gender roles and class divisions through a modern lens. Proceeds benefitted the Ali Forney Center, which provides services for homeless LGBT youth in NYC.
Produced by WOW Cafe Theatre, co-directed by Nicolette Dixon and Ben Prusiner
