During the COVID-19 pandemic, Apples and Oranges Arts has been a leader in guiding the theater industry into the virtual world.
In collaboration with the National Alliance for Musical Theater and The Shubert Organization, we launched our Digitizing the Fourth Wall course, aimed at helping regional theaters strategize for a year without live performances.
Apples and Oranges Arts continues to produce theatrical works during this time, including a virtual production of A Separate Peace by Tom Stoppard, and more recently Cuttin’ Up by Charles Wright, which premiered on Playbill June 21st.
Our THEatre ACCELERATOR program continues to run, as we emphasize virtual creation along with our start-up development strategies to help writers realize their full potential.

About Apples and Oranges Arts:
At Apples and Oranges Arts, we seek to help artists by providing an educational platform for storytellers to learn to become creative entrepreneurs and self advocates.
Through our THEatre ACCELERATOR program, we teach writers how to properly accelerate and develop their work using audience analysis, branding strategies and lean development methods. By applying Silicon Valley models to the musical development process, we help artists identify their audiences early on to find their product market fit and build out their Minimum Viable Musical.
We believe in pushing the boundaries of theater as an art form. Every day we innovate new and exciting ways for theatergoers to enjoy content ranging from streamed, digital content to interactive and immersive mixed reality experiences. We committed advocates of diverse, unique stories from varying worldwide perspectives.
All of our projects demonstrate how we foster challenging and safe environments where people learn by doing what they love.
