Sharon Gans & her late husband Alex Horn Started a cult in San Francisco known as the Theater of All Possibilities. The cult was exposed in a San Francisco Chronicle article named Strange School on December 23rd 1978. According to the article "police and social welfare investigators heard allegations by ex-members and others close to the theater of beatings, child neglect, and a student fee structure that reportedly yielded huge revenues." Rick Ross a cult awareness expert has extensive information on Gans and Horn ( pointing out in very clear terms that they both fraudulently present themselves as a "teachers of the Work" ( the Work being a system of ideas developed by George Gurdjieff and PD Ouspensky) yet neither Sharon Gans or her late husband Alex Horn ever studied the Work with an authentic teacher. Hundreds of ex-victims or "students" of Horns and Gans have given their accounts of families being destroyed, emotional abuse, slave labor and brainwashing. The Cult is still run today by Gans in New York City.

In October 1988, Gans directed the play The Legend of Sharon Shashanovah, presented at the 47th Street Theater in New York City. Gans co-wrote A Chekhov Concert with Jordan Charney that was performed by the Moscow Contemporary Theater.
