After an action-packed evening of interviews with the zaniest personalities in the world, Blumenthal and Harris declare which of these influencers will take the title of the first-ever “Influencer Laureate.”

About Young Company

Entering its 12th season, The Young Company uses the same ensemble training techniques that created the Irondale Ensemble Project. Just as the professional company grew out of the interests and talents of the original members, the Young Company develops work in the same way. Young Company members will create and perform two productions over the course of the school year, travel to see other professional shows, and intern with a professional theatre company.

Young Company members gain hands-on experience and learn what it takes to run a professional theatre by ushering visiting and in-house productions, assisting in youth classes, distributing marketing materials, stuffing programs, and working alongside Irondale’s professional Ensemble on our Equity productions. We are truly grateful for their commitment and are proud to call each and every young person an Irondale family member. The Young Company is generously supported by New York State Council on the Arts, Sonia Staff Foundation, Department of Cultural Affairs, City of New York, and our generous individual donors, providing NYC teens complimentary tuition.

Young Company provides hundreds of hours of free training to young actors every year. This performance is free but we always appreciate any contributions for the ensemble and Irondale’s other education programs. Text YC21 to 44-321 to donate and support Irondale’s youth programming.

Irondale exists at the intersection of art, education, and social justice.
