Thank You Cherie Messore and the rest of the wonderful folks at Buffalo Theatre Guide for writing such a beautiful article about ITOWNY and our upcoming inaugural staged performance of “And Where Will You Put the Things You Save?” We are forever grateful!
We are so very proud to be a part of the Buffalo theater community and are so very thankful to have so much support! We LOVE you!!!
From the article:
“The company began modestly, with writing groups and acting workshops. Participation is open to anyone, disabled or not, with one condition: they have to be willing to work. The company dynamic reflects its name. Aimee says, “We welcome abled and disabled people working together. Our company is made up of people color, from different lifestyles and countries of birth. We want everyone to feel safe in their creative expression.” Company members aren’t asked to disclose their disability or identify as disabled. “The word ‘disabled’ is thrown around a lot. The word itself is disabling,” says Aimee. “We want everyone to feel wanted and accepted in this company.”
