THE Mission

ENTERTAIN • EMPOWER • ENLIGHTEN

Rosalind Productions Inc. explores stories in which the female characters are as vital, complex and influential as the male characters. Working with classical, contemporary and original material, we endeavor to engage, move and inspire audiences on an intellectual, emotional and spiritual level, by allowing them to experience and empathize with each character’s desires, vulnerabilities and range of masculine and feminine traits. Our hope is that our audiences will take with them a sense of recognition and a better understanding of their own humanity.

Rosalind Productions Inc. was founded in 2005 by Abigail Rose Solomon and was incorporated in 2007. Previously, we produced in Los Angeles. Currently, we produce On and Off Broadway. We are also interested in films. We collaborate with Artists who are intelligent, talented and kind.

THE Mascot

THE Name

THE PENGUIN is Abigail Rose Solomon’s personal symbol of empowerment and success.  When Abigail was twelve at Camp Walden, her bunk performed Mary Poppins.   When she auditioned, everyone thought she’d get the lead, but she was cast as a mere penguin.  Nevertheless, she penguined her heart out (even when chastised by a competitive fellow camper) and stole the show.  It was then that she knew she had The Chops. For the rest of the summer and summers to come, other campers would request her to “do the penguin.”

Abigail drew this particular penguin after seeing the documentary March of the Penguins.  Male and female Emperor Penguins share equal roles as travelers, citizens, lovers and parents.

ROSALIND, the heroine in Shakespeare’s comedy, As You Like It, is one of the greatest roles ever written for women. Like all of Shakespeare’s leading ladies, she is intelligent, witty, resourceful, and brave. What’s remarkable about Rosalind is that she drives much of the play’s action, creates other characters’ destinies, and gets what she wants in the end. She even gives the Epilogue, highly unusual for a female character. It’s her play, with a happy ending. In the vibrant Forest of Arden, she is reunited with her long-lost father, as she marries the love of her life, always with her closest girlfriend at her side.

In Stages, the play that inspired the inception of ROSALIND PRODUCTIONS, the lead character is an actress, currently performing the role of Rosalind in a production of As You Like It.

Finally, Rosalind combines the name ROSE, Abigail’s middle name, with LINDA, Abigail’s mother’s name.
