Co-moderated by Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins 
(Jelly's Last Jam, Caroline or Change; TV's All My Children, Fear the Walking Dead), the panel will feature Christine Bruno, actor, teaching artist, SAG-AFTRA NY Board member, Disability Inclusion Consultant;  Adrian Budhu, Deputy Director and COO at Theatre Communications Group (TCG); Nina Zoie Lam, co founder of National Asian Artists Project; Natasha Sinha, director of artistic programs for Signature Theatre; Ludovica Villar-Hauser, founder and artistic director of Parity Productions.

Theater in the US has evolved with many of the same structural inequities that exist in our larger society. Many believe that it is urgently important to give artistic voice to a range of human stories that more accurately reflect the diversity of our country and our world. In the current political climate, this work becomes even more important. Are diversity, equity and inclusion becoming more central as values and practices in theaters here and around the country? Or are there still "gatekeepers" whose personal interests, and assumptions about their audiences, influence them - perhaps unconsciously - to gravitate repeatedly toward the same collaborators and kinds of stories. Are they becoming more inclusive at the board and staff levels? Where are the producers who have a stake in bringing diversity to the stage? And how do we partner with a wide range of communities who will trust that their stories are being told truthfully - and that they are truly welcome?

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 30-second summary of who you are, and what you need. Free for TRU members; $12.50 for non-members in advance; $15 for non-members at door. Half price for Coalition member org members with code SA-50.

Early access to Mêlisa Annis' Charlie's Waiting

Dear Women in the Arts & Media Coalition,
We're incredibly excited to present Charlie's Waiting, the world premiere play by Mêlisa Annis - our 2017 Commission winner - as our first 2019 production. Mêlisa is one of the most exciting emerging playwrights you will hear all year. Charlie's Waiting - a gripping, dark comedy with a twist - will leave you on the edge of your seat. The play features Tony Award nominee Xanthe Elbrick*.

Because of buzz around Mêlisa's work, certain performances are expected to sell out. Use early access discount code EARLYCHARLIE through February 9th.
Mêlisa Annis' work has been seen at or developed by Parity Productions, The Lark and Dorset Theater Festival, Rattlestick, Primary Stages, and Red Caravan. 
Charlie’s Waiting follows two women the night before their wedding. A very pregnant Louise is busy with all the planning while her fiancée Kelly busies herself feeding the goats. Everything is going to plan, that is until Louise is forced to confront questions of trust and intimacy, and she discovers how quickly plans can get derailed.
