Interstate is a new musical written by Melissa Li (Jonathan Larson Award winner) and KEY Member Kit Yan (award-winning poet, Public & WP Theater Trans Lab Fellow). Interstate is an official selection of the 2018 New York Musical Festival (NYMF)'s Next Link Project and will be the Opening Night show for NYMF! 


Interstate is an Asian-American pop-rock poetry musical that follows Dash, a transgender spoken word performer, and his best friend Adrian, a lesbian singer-songwriter. Together, they form Queer Malady, an activist band that becomes internet-famous. Fueled by the allure of fame and a desire to connect with their community, they embark on a road trip across America for their first national tour, culminating in a final San Francisco performance, where they hope to be signed by a mainstream record label. Interstate addresses racism, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, toxic masculinity, and xenophobia head-on by telling the story of queer Asians who face oppression at the intersection of their identities.

Pass/Fail is a new dark comedy by KEY Member Sandy Gooen, directed by KEY Member Donnie Cianciotto, and is a part of the Trans Theatre Festival at The Brick. Featured in the cast is KEY Member Emily McNally.  

Pass/Fail is about Johnny, a Transmasculine student at a women’s college, and his relationship to his school, his childhood best friend Noah, and his seemingly conflicting identities. The play begs the question of the importance of passing vs. belonging.
