Women Producers: 

What They Uniquely Bring to the Table

Tuesday, October 24th
The Playroom Theater, 

Moderated by TRU Vice President and Co-Founder 
Cheryl Davis.

Presented in association with us (the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, speakers include:
Sue Frost, founding partner at Junkyard Dog Productions (Come From Away, TONY Award-winning Memphis, First Date);

A Steady Rain, Play Dead, The Exonerated, In the Continuum);  
plus others to be announced soon.

Is theater a welcoming environment for women producers? Has that changed over the years? Do women producers offer a different aesthetic 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?

Doors open at 7:00pm for networking and refreshments, roundtable introductions of everyone in the room will start at 7:30pm - come prepared with your best one-minute summary of who you are and what you need. Free for TRU members, $5 for members of all Coalition member orgs, $12.50 for non-members
