Formed in 2001 by Jeanne Donovan Fisher and Laurie Gilmore, True
Love Productions is a commercial producing company committed to
presenting unique voices in theatre with a focus on artistic excellence
Our inaugural production, Charles L. Mee's True Love, heralded
the opening of a new and unique Off-Broadway theatre spaceThe
Zipper: a factory renovated and transformed by the True Love creative
team in conjunction with the theatre owners specifically to suit
the needs of our production. What resulted was a theatre piece perfectly
married to its atmosphere; a totally enveloping theatrical experience.
The audience lounged in car seats, eating popcorn and drinking beer
to the sounds of our live garage band as Mee's exploration of love
played out in the abandoned zipper factory turned gas station. True
Love was met with resounding critical acclaimtheatergoers
and critics alike praised the strength of the ensemble cast, the
inventive direction, and the stunning theatricality of the work.
From this exhilarating event our production company was born. We
remain committed to developing and presenting challenging works
with unique theatrical potential.
