My View: Hey Madam Producer…They Bring Broadway to Palm Beach

Some of South Florida’s most important theater producers were “on stage” last night.

Dave Lawrence, President & CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County presented an informative and entertaining evening with some of South Florida’s most important and well known theater producers.  Suzanne L. Niedland, award-winning filmmaker, actor and Broadway producer interviewed Marcie Gorman, executive producer and artistic director of MNM Theatre Company, Vicki Halmos, founder/producer of Entr’Acte Theatrix, Jan McArt, producer & director of Theatre Arts Program Development at Lynn University, and Marilynn Wick, executive managing producer of The Wick Theatre & Costume Museum.

The conversations produced a fascinating insight into the interesting careers of these dynamic women who have brought “Broadway” to South Florida. The Colony Hotel Coral Ballroom was filled to capacity with Cultural Council members and friends of the theatre from NYC and Florida for the event.
