Panel discussion – Women in American Theater

Tuesday, 3/13 – 7:00 pm – Room 264, Aaron Copland School of Music

On Tuesday, March 13, at 7:00 pm, Evening Readings will feature a panel discussion on women in American theatre with playwrights Lisa Kron, Tony Award winner for Fun Home; Kia Corthron, Windham-Campbell Literature Prize winner for Drama; Patricia Ione Lloyd, New Professional Theatre’s Emerging Playwright Award winner; and Monet Hurst-Mendoza, 2017 Emerging Writers Group at The Public Theater and a 2016-2018 Van Lier Fellow at New Dramatists. This panel will highlight the contributions of women to American theatre and address the challenges that female theatre professionals must still overcome to have their voices heard and their work recognized.

The Women in American Theatre panel will be moderated by former Newsday theatre critic Linda Winer, who was also chief theatre and dance critic of the Chicago Tribune from 1969-1980, and was a critic for the New York Daily News and USA Today. For many years, Winer was virtually the only female first-string theatre critic in New York and the only woman in the New York Drama Critics’ Circle. That has changed today, but it has been a “slow progress,” according to Winer herself. This panel aims at analyzing this and other timely topics.
