The League of Professional Theatre Women’s Annual Theatre Women Awards: Roma Torre and Linda Winer

Linda Winer, hosted the The League of Professional Theatre Women’s series “Women in Theatre” from 2002 through 2007 and was the chief theatre critic for Newsday from 1987-2017.  “Can you imagine an award for a critic? What a concept. “There were no women critics, first-string, for the first 30 years that I was here. I was the only first-string woman critic at any paper in the Tri-state area…We’ve gotten more and more critics; unfortunately there are fewer and fewer papers for women to work at. But I do think that this is a kind of remarkable time for women, whether it has to do with journalism or not.”

The League of Professional Theatre Women (a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization) has been championing women and leading the gender parity conversation in the professional theatre for over 35 years. Since its founding, the LPTW’s membership has grown to 500+ members of theatre artists and practitioners of all backgrounds, across multiple disciplines, working in the commercial and non-profit sectors. To promote visibility and increase opportunities for women in the field, the LPTW spearheads events, public programming, advocacy projects, media, and publications that celebrate industry luminaries, preserve the legacy of historic visionaries, raise awareness of the importance of nurturing women’s voices, and shine a spotlight on the imperative of striving for gender parity and fostering a diversity of expression, both in the theatre world and the world at large.
