The Bridge PHL is a Philadelphia-based production company founded in 2015 by Gabrielle Corsaro, Hannah Tsapatoris MacLeod, Meryl Lynn Brown, and Kathy Harmer. We believe in the power of the narrative to encourage dialogue so we may all rise together to remake our world with compassion and inclusion. We seek to inspire a dialogue confronting systemic racism and to highlight the work of local black and brown theatre and performance artists. Since 2015, our Bridge PHL family has grown into a power-packed ensemble of writers, performers, directors, and designers. Please visit our Staff & Alumni page.
The Bridge PHL strives to foster healing connections between our rich and diverse communities by encouraging openness and dialogue on racial prejudice, privilege, inclusion, intersectionality and bias.
Our annual theatre festival each autumn and cabaret each spring welcomes both emerging and experienced artists wishing to engage in this mission. Through theatre and the performing arts, we seek to create spaces where artists with marginalized voices, especially the diverse voices of black American women, feel welcome and are heard.
