a paradigm shift for female actors

The Muse Project asks actresses, “What role have you always wanted to play? What story have you always wanted to tell? What do you need to create that role or tell that story?” It is an actor-driven process. In partnership with New Georges, and with additional support from The New Group and Abingdon Theatre Company, the inaugural 2016/17 Season of The Muse Project is well underway. Artistic Director, Jocelyn Kuritsky, leads a passionate staff dedicated to supporting women artists in their Muse Projects.


Please support The Muse Project with a tax-deductible contribution, to help us pay all collaborators generously for their energy and talents. Together, we can raise the industry standards of compensation for the new work development process

The project can take on a myriad number of forms: anything from a perfect, tailored monologue to the inception of an avant-garde dance/theater piece to the completion of a full-length, narrative play. The Muse Project team will assist each actor individually and help her to create a dream team of collaborators (actors, writers, directors, musicians, etc.). She will be given the time, space, and other resources necessary to arrive at a semblance of a first iteration, usually through a workshop process termed Mini Muse. Then, the piece will be shared with an audience to incite discussion and further development of the piece.
