Fundraising with a kick

One of our events this spring was a Knee's Up Fundraiser at Club Cumming. Actors, singers, and performers took the stage to explore the theme of inter-generational dynamics. We investigated this theme through performances including "Growin' Up" by Bruce Springsteen, "You are Old Father William" - a poem by Lewis Carol, and an original song titled "Let's Get Married" by Thomas Burns Scully. Pictured to the left, the wonderful Amelia V. Anderson rouses the crowd with a song by the musical group Saffire: The Uppity Blues Women with the catchy lyrics "I'm growning older, and I'm just fine growing old." The fundraiser was full of laughs, applause, and cash tips going into top hats to help fund DoubleDeckerProductions' upcoming season. One of the attendees described the event as "one of the best cabaret performances I have ever been a part of."

Meet the team

Our production of Meshahnye was spearheaded by three ladies. Jenny Sterlin, Artistic Director and Founder, started the company in Boston in the late 90s. After relocating to New York, she continued to produce shows, partnering with other companies and artists along the way. Now, Jenny heads the nonprofit theatre company with the help of Alex Duncker, Production Assistant. Laurie Prose joined the team as General Manager to help produce our introductory piece of the 2018/19 Season - a new translation of a Maxim Gorky play. The three women were responsible for organizing the two fundraisers and creating a fully-staged production of Meshahnye at Theater for the New City September 2018. The show was praised for it’s high production value, talented cast of actors, and modern interpretation of the culturally enlightening and shockingly relevant turn of the century play.
