Formed in 2011 as a partnership between three multi-cultural and multi-generational women, Chinese Mother Jewish Daughter LLC  lives where art and entertainment collide. Under the executive watch of Stacey Weingarten, it supports diverse, original projects often with a message of inclusivity and social awareness. CMJD LLC has developed and produced the Off-Broadway family musical Rescue Rue, its sequel Runaway Rue, as well as educational family series Monica's Mixing Bowl, and musicals including Ludo's Broken Bride (a sci-fi Rock Opera/jukebox musical), 5th Republic (fka Les Enfants de Paris; a historical fiction infused with chansons and Arabic inspired tunes), and Madame (a gender-affirming operetta set at the turn of the 20th century).
