Over 2,200 Students Have Attended GLORIA: A Life Through the Hope-aholics Donor Program

Over 2,200 Students Have Attended GLORIA: A Life Through the Hope-aholics Donor Program

Over 2,200 students have seen GLORIA: A Life, the groundbreaking play about activist and icon Gloria Steinem, thanks to the generosity of Hope-aholics. Named for Steinem, who coined the phrase, the Hope-aholics initiative allows donors to underwrite student tickets so that the next generation of activists can take inspiration from her story. Launched in October 2018, the program has raised over $66,000 in donations in under five months.

Producer Daryl Roth (Kinky Boots, The Normal Heart, Indecent) said in a statement, “After hearing from audience members asking how they could help spread the good word, we created the Hope-aholics initiative so that students can share in Gloria’s extraordinary story and learn to become change-makers in their own lives.”

The student groups, primarily from public and charter schools, have come from all five New York City boroughs, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. The production has also welcomed young people from the Girl Scouts and performing arts organizations.

The world premiere production of GLORIA: A Life, presented by Tony Award-winning producer Daryl Roth, opened October 18, 2018 at the Daryl Roth Theatre on Union Square (101 East 15th Street at Park Avenue South) and is on sale through March 31, 2019.

Hailed by New York Magazine as “a unique, deeply moving” experience, GLORIA: A Life is a “living, breathing documentary” (WNYC) celebrating one of the most inspirational activists of our time. The first act is her story; the second is our own: Act Two is a Talking Circle in which the audience is invited to carry the play into an open conversation.

GLORIA: A Life is written by Tony Award-nominee Emily Mann (Having Our Say) and is directed by visionary Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin).
