Is It Thursday Yet?

Dec 8—23, 2023

Co-Created, Co-Choreographed, and Performed by Jenn Freeman
Co-Created, Co-Choreographed, and Directed by Sonya Tayeh
Composed and Performed by Holland Andrews

Run time: 75 minutes

A dance of discovery. A brain in motion. A life on the spectrum.

Is It Thursday Yet? is a stunning tapestry of dance, live music and home video footage that invites you into the unique complexities of dancer and choreographer Jenn Freeman’s life following her Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis at age 33. Since then, she has navigated an endless sea of epiphanies, examining childhood memories through this new lens.

Scored with original live music from composer and vocalist Holland Andrews with a set by Rachel Hauck (Tony Award® winner, Hadestown), this engrossing new work is co-created and co-choreographed by Freeman and the electrifying Sonya Tayeh (Tony Award winner, Moulin Rouge!) on as Director.

A PAC NYC Commission.

Production Advisory

This production contains loud sounds, some flashing lights, and moments of darkness.

A collaboration between two badass choreographers at the shiny new Perelman Performing Arts Center.

New York Magazine

Eclectically inventive. Freeman’s dancing is lyrical, masterful; precise, but also playful.

New York Theater

Deeply sincere and open-hearted. Freeman and Tayeh have taken a very serious and personal topic and skillfully developed it into an informative, moving theatrical work.

Fjord Review

A moving, cathartic journey of the mind. Is It Thursday Yet? is a testament to the liberating and life-affirming power of dance.
