In the Streets Productions’ Mission: To foster stronger, more vibrant, anti-oppressive queer communities through fun, accessible, thought provoking multi-genre performance for queers, by queers.
In addition to The Femme Show, productions include Prove It All Night: Queers do the Boss, Say Please, and numerous collaborations with touring rock stars like Body Heat, Good Asian Drivers, and Heels on Wheels. We have donated to and collaborated with organizations including The Network (la) Red, the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition, Food For Thought Books, True Colors queer youth conference, and more.
About the Femme Show: The Femme Show is a Boston, MA based group of queer performers who bring deep, personal explorations of queer and subversive femininity and fem/femme identity to the stage in a fun, eclectic variety show. This is queer art for queer people: challenging, introspective, brazen, funny, sexy, and gritty but always powerful.
They are available for workshops and performances at schools, colleges, dive bars, and community events. To bring The Femme Show to your area, email info [at] thefemmeshow.com.

It has also been featured at True Colors, the country’s largest LGBTQI youth conference (Storrs, CT); at Emerson College (Boston, MA); Marist College (Poughkeepsie, NY); Snug Underground Theatre Festival (Staten Island, NY); Queer Spirit Camp (Greenwich, New York); Common Threads Youth Empowerment Retreat (Stony Point, NY); and many others.
