Opening Act’s theater programs provide students attending New York City’s most under-served public schools the opportunity to gain confidence, pride, and the knowledge that they can succeed at anything in life.

Suzy Myers Jackson, Executive Director of Opening Act had some very nice things to say at the recent launch party for their new website.

The new site was designed by students at Pratt, and developed by Tierra. We’re thrilled to support an organization that carries out such amazing work!


Jen Talks Shop with The Paris Review

Tierra designer, Jennifer OverThessaly La Force, Web Editor at The Paris Review interviews Tierra designer, Jennifer Over.

For those unfamiliar with the old site, what has changed?

Well, a big change is that the site now features a mix of evergreen content from the issue and more ephemeral content from The Daily and Twitter. You might drop in to check out something on the blog and then ten minutes later find yourself reading an interview from 1978.

Another change is that it’s easier to browse the archives of The Paris Review. For the first time, you can browse by genre, which is a whole new way of looking at the work. The new site pulls a lot of amazing pieces from the archive to the surface. I hope that it excites your readers!

Read the full interview.
