My Story

Shira Helena Gitlin (they/them) is a trans nonbinary director, deviser, dramaturg, gender consultant, and musical theatre enthusiast. Shira's primary goal as an artist is to create and participate in collaborative, positive environments that emphasize identity, intersectionality, and creativity. As a director, Shira is interested in pushing musical theatre to new limits and crafting new works that showcase 2SLGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent stories and histories.
