IN THE NOW

 

Lets Start a Conversation

Gregory Omar Osborne founded Progressive Theater in November of  2018 because there was one problem he had with theater. The ratios between white and "minority" was that of A Clorox Bleach dilution ration, 1 part bleach to 30 parts water. So he decided to start a conversation on a podcast entitled, TOKENS  & CHANGE. The podcast aims to address diversity and inclusion in theater: where we’re excelling and lacking and how we can improve our community. He starts a conversation with people who can change aesthetics; casting directors, agents/managers, creatives. Guests from all stages of the biz, novice to professional, will share their stories.

 

Join the conversation every Friday!

A World Premiere is on its way!

The Holiday season is upon us and GOO, Inc has a present for you! After a successful run of Five Guys Named Moe GOO, Inc is bringing actors from NJ and NY together for the world premiere of A PARK AVENUE CHRISTMAS by Ed Dixon! This show is sure to warm your heart and tickle you with its humor. Performances will be held at The Burgdorff Center for The Performing Arts, December 20 - 23, 2018. 

Five Guys Named Moe

GOO Inc would like to thank all who came and supported the cast of FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE, This story of love, accountability and brotherhood is needed especially in today's climate where men of color are being targeted. The show also speaks to male groups of all races when it comes to vulnerability. 

Going forward I'd like to keep Louis Jordan's music alive and share this story with young men and women in schools across Essex County NJ and maybe even NY, just putting that out there. If we work together I am sure we can make it happen. With that being said please visit the link via the image and donate to the future of FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE.
 

It's a new season and it's time to make a change! Gregory Omar Osborne Inc. presents Five Guys Named Moe, Seeking all shades of black actors, musicians, investors, and creatives. The production will run for 3 days at the end of June into July at the Burgdorff Center for Performing Arts in Maplewood, NJ with choreography by Gregory Omar Osborne and the direction of Daryl Stewart.

2017 was definitely one for the books and why not share a little bit of that with the world! Gregory shares a story that may be familiar to many artists who are trying to make it and reminds us that we are never alone in this journey. The saying “starving artist & struggling artist” has to end.Featuring soulful and uplifting music by Donny Hathaway & Joss Stone, songs like “Secret Of Happiness” from Daddy Long Legs, and a nod to his Caribbean roots. Gregory creates a buoyant atmosphere with new unique arrangements mashing up Broadway show tunes and Billboard hits; “9 to 5,” “On Broadway,” and “Billionaire.”

One of Broadway’s newest musical comedy smashes, Sister Act is the amazing, high-energy show that has audiences jumping to their feet! Nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical and featuring original music by multi-Oscar and Tony Award winner Alan Menken, Sister Act tells the story of disco diva Deloris Van Cartier and the outrageous events that transpire after she witnesses a murder. Placed under protective custody, the cops house her in the last place anyone would think to look: a convent! Disguised as a nun, Deloris uses her unique talents to energize the moribund choir of nuns as they try to win a talent competition. Filled with powerful music and extravagant dancing, Sister Act is a joyous tribute to the power of friendship.
