Children from the Manhattan neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen will perform in short plays written specifically for them as part of the 52nd Street Project's What's My Line: The Professional Plays, which will run at the Project's Five Angels Theater from July 18-20.

The 52nd Street Project makes a difference in the lives of Hell's Kitchen kids by pairing them with theater professionals who mentor them through the creation of original theater. Each child is assigned a playwright who is tasked with writing a musical specifically for that child. The shows are rehearsed and performed over the course of the week.

This year's young performers are Adam Alkindi, Duaa Alkindi, Kiara Figueroa, Joshua Gomez, David Ortiz, Kayla Ortiz, Emily Roman, Karen Tineo, Milen Tokarev, and Kaylee Zambrano. The adult artists include Willie Reale, Dahlia Azama, Daiva Deupree, Madeleine George, Itamar Moses, Genesis Oliver, Carra Patterson, Nick Platt, Michael Propster, Jeremy Rishe, John Sheehy, Amirah Vann, and Cate Yu.
