Women Producers: What They Uniquely Bring To The Table

Women Producers: What They Uniquely Bring To The Table

TRU

Is theater a welcoming environment for women producers​? Has that changed over the years? Do women producers offer a different esthetic from their male counterparts? ​Studies indicate that women tend to be more collaborative, intuitive and empathetic in their management style. Though perhaps a generalization, ​do women producers display a different management style? ​There is controversy about the disproportionate number of works by men produced ​both historically and in the present. Might more women producers mean more works by women, and more stories that center on women​?  Is commercial theater or not-for-profit more welcoming for women? And given all these questions, what might theater look like with more women producers taking the lead?

On Tuesday, October 24th at The Playroom Theater, 151 W. 46th Street, 8th floor 8 women producers will share their secrets.  Moderated by TRU Vice President and Co-Founder Cheryl Davis. Presented in association with Women in the Arts & Media Coalition. Speakers to include Pat Addiss, producer (Gigi, TONY Award for Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike and Spring Awakening, A Christmas Story, The Fantasticks off-Broadway); Sue Frost, founding partner at Junkyard Dog Productions (Come From Away, TONY Award-winning Memphis, First Date); Baayork Lee, co-founder & executive artistic director and Nina Zoie Lam, co-founder & advisory board member of National Asian Arts Project; Kristin Marting, executive director of HERE Arts Center; Lorca Peress, artistic director of MultiStages; Cheryl Wiesenfeld, 4-time Tony winning producer (Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike, All the Way, Porgy & Bess, Elaine Stritch: At Liberty; plus A Steady Rain, Play Dead, The Exonerated, In the Continuum).
