The 52nd Street Project makes a difference in the lives of countless Hell’s Kitchen (Clinton) kids by pairing them with theater professionals who mentor them through the creation of original theater. Perhaps the most poignant presentations made by the Project are those in its semi-annual Playmaking series, which features the Project’s youngest Hell’s Kitchen menses – 9- and 10-year-olds who have just begun their theatrical education – writing for accomplished professional actors and revealing their work to a public audience for the first time. Accomplished actors including Raúl Castillo (“Looking,” “Gotham”), Billy Crudup (Jackie, 20th Century Women, Almost Famous), Crystal Dickinson (Clybourne Park), Brandon Dirden (All the Way, Jitney), Carson Elrod (Peter & the Starcatcher, Noises Off), Nancy Giles (“CBS Sunday Morning”), Michael Potts (Book of Mormon, Jitney, “The Wire”), Mirarai Sithole (Mother Courage & Her Children, “Broad City”), Micah Stock (The Front Page, It’s Only a Play) and others will perform in All Together Now: The United Plays, the Project’s Spring 2017 Playmaking show. All Together Now will run Friday, March 31, through Sunday, April 2, at The 52nd Street Project’s Five Angels Theater (789 Tenth Avenue, 2nd floor, NYC). Performances will take place Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm, and Saturday & Sunday at 3pm.
