Help mud rock the work!
Mississippi Mud Productions is a Made in the USA theatre and film company, working with artists from around the world. Mississippi Mud Productions is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit 501(c)(3).
Artistic director Jen Danby started acting at the age of 5. She says "Acting is just in your blood. You know if it is calling you and Mississippi Mud was born with actors who wanted to play. When Mud was christened on Thanskgiving Day 2009, a core reason for the name was the Southern folklore that the Mississippi River came to be because when the world was made there was all this extra water and it became the Mississippi. For me, this is the American Dream in the Mud."
As Dennis Hopper told James Dean on the set of GIANT, "Don't pretend to drink the coffee. Drink it!" Do. That's what Mud is, a space to Do, in work, laboratory, gym, ensemble. And that's Giant.
And as Lord Byron says in Tennessee Williams' Camino Real, "Make voyages! Attempt them...there's nothing else."
