What happened to Kids with Guns?

…and other Frequently Asked Questions!

Question:
Well, where did the Kids go?

Answer:
We’re right here! This summer, however, Mike and I decided to rename the company Firework Theater. Same great company. Brand new name!

Question:
Why the change?

Answer:
A couple reasons.

First, we are addressing a gap between our name and our work that has existed from the very beginning. We have always produced (often funny) shows about love and relationships–and the name Kids with Guns has never really served this sensibility.

Next, we’re growing as a company. This means building relationships with corporate sponsors, foundations, and government organizations, and as you might imagine, the name Kids with Guns is frequently misunderstood.

Finally, we really like our new name! It’s visual and positive and just feels right to us. Firework Theater ignites new work in New York City!
