Join the neuro-inclusive company of The EPIC Players, recently off a sold-out run at The Flea Theater as they perform songs about themselves, their ambitions, their loves, their lives alongside Broadway voices for 1-night-only!

“EPIC Players give voice to those who are rarely told to speak up, and awakens us all to the idea that there are countless others out there who have voices worth hearing too—if we would only give them a chance. The EPIC Players’ pursuit is a noble one; to be the beacon, the proverbial shining city on a hill, bravely providing an example for the rest of us to follow.” – My Entertainment World
“Another ambitious project… Seeing EPIC while they’re still in their formative years will give you “early adopter” status when the neuro-inclusive troupe becomes every bit as iconic as The Flea.” – The Villager
“In a time when the president is literally making fun of people with disabilities on television, it is so inspirational to see the strength of these performers who respond to that kind of adversity by creating really good musical theater. They make it seem effortless!... There's something so incredibly special about theater where ego and pretentiousness are nowhere to be found!” – Yes Broadway
The EPIC Players’s version of The Tempest stands out in a way that feels genuinely notable.The theater company centers neurodivergent performers, such as people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Such casting not only works to give tangible representation to marginalized groups (whose roles are often given to neurotypical, able-bodied actors instead), but also adds a new layer to Shakespeare’s story of manipulation and sorcery. — New York Theater
