On Cryer and Ford’s Hidden Treasures, 1967-2020…

“A tonic for the ears and the mind! Celebrating the best of the human spirit, and the all-too-human faults and foibles of us all, their work has feel-good nostalgia infused with psychological truth serum and the lightning flash of carpe diem.”

— Rob Lester, Talkin’ Broadway

Our Commitment to Anti-Racism

The Musical Theater Project declares and affirms our commitment to anti-racist action. We stand firmly with those who call for justice and work tirelessly to end systemic racism both here at home in Northeast Ohio and throughout the far reaches of our country and beyond. We acknowledge that our own institution’s history is inextricably linked to an industry-wide ethos of fear resulting from racism and its intersecting oppressions.

To that end, Bill Rudman, Founding Artistic Director, and Jack Warren, Managing Director, pledge to take meaningful action on an inclusive, shame-free anti-racist agenda to be created collaboratively among staff, trustees and fellow industry creatives as we strive to become better examples of the change we want to see in the world.
