"The Wild Project is a truly special place and we're lucky to have an organization with a
professional theater space in the neighborhood that supports new work by emerging and seasoned artists alike. Over the years I have had the privilege of performing and producing at Wild Project and can't imagine our community without it. Spaces like these have become rarer and rarer in New York City, and it is so important as artists and theater-goers that we come together to support them. The fact that these artists and filmmakers are donating their time and talent in order to help save this theater is incredible!" says Jill Pangallo, performer and co-producer of FOLLOWSPOT.
