Browne's BLACK GIRLS DON'T SMILE MOSAIC IN FRONT OF STRANGERS (co-presented with the Hip-Hop Theater Festival), a story of transformation in the heart/cracked globe of a city where apples, lights and love seek refuge; and BREAKING OUR SILENCE, featuring LGBTQ poets sharing their experiences of coming out, finding love and crashing through the barriers of shame and silence to emerge into a new world, curated by JoAnna Hoffman and Elliott D. Smith; and Warrior Writers NYC's FROM TABLE TO STAGE.
