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.
