WHAT WE DO
VLOG produces reimagined classic operettas and Golden Age musicals with modern themes and equitable representation that reflects the diversity of NYC today, and revives lesser-known works to elevate underrepresented artists within this generation-spanning genre.
BACKSTAGE TO FOOTLIGHTS
Our mainstage productions include as many as forty cast members, plus myriad behind-the-scenes volunteers who build the sets and costumes and keep the group “on its feet.” Our concerts and cabarets are designed to give members the chance to showcase their strengths and challenge themselves in new ways, whether on their own or as part of a duet or small ensemble.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION
VLOG cultivates a dynamic presence with storytelling through music and theatre, and innovates by staying connected to the heartbeat of NYC. We work to create safe spaces for artists to come together, placing an emphasis on community and unity. Our group strives to open its horizons and continuously educate ourselves on the issues that matter to our community.
GIVING BACK TO NYC
VLOG was born in New York, and we like to honor the city that nurtured us through our many seasons. That's why we work to bring the delights of operetta's rich history to new audiences who don't have access to theatre. Beyond that, we reinvest in our community through fundraising events, volunteering, and more.
Between performances, we keep our community close through social activities, such as an annual fund-raising concert and summer get-away weekend in Vermont. We also organize monthly VLOG membership events that take advantage of all NYC has to offer, whether it’s enjoying a free outdoor performance, ice skating in Central Park, singing show tunes at Marie’s Crisis, or attending a holiday gathering at a member’s home.
