As a 2021 recipient of the Sony Alpha Female+ Grant, actress and filmmaker Gabrielle Mariella was given 5 weeks to create a short film from start to finish. Using interviews from 5 groundbreaking women, ENOUGH seeks to amplify the voices of women on Broadway Creative Teams, highlight the need for more of them, and inspire young women to pursue a career in theatre as a creative. Though women shine on stage, behind the scenes of Broadway productions still lies a very stark gender imbalance. In the past two decades, the percentage of women on Broadway creative teams in almost every category remains under 30%. For some fields, like orchestration or sound design, in single digits. And for women of color? Often entirely invisible. ENOUGH serves as both a celebratory exploration of women behind Broadway and a call-to-action; how many is enough?

Director Statement

I was inspired by Sonya Tayeh's speech at the Tony Awards and decided to apply for a grant to create this piece. I wound up interviewing 5 groundbreaking women who generously shared with me their work, their hopes, their fears, and their joy. I created this film in hopes of allowing young women who want to direct, sound design, choreograph compose, etc. to see themselves and realize they can do it, too.

I believe that the stories we tell on stage and on screen matter, and have the power to create positive change. I also believe in practicing what I preach; this film features and was created entirely from top to bottom by women.

This one is for all the girls out there who did not see themselves. "You can't be what you can't see," is a quote that resonates with me from Sally Ride. She's right; until you can see someone who looks like you doing it, you don't know that it's possible. I hope to change that.
