The League of Professional Theatre Women kicks off its 40th anniversary season with a birthday celebration at TheaterLab from 6-8 PM September 20. The event will feature industry professionals such as Irene Gandy, Emily Mann, Charlotte Moore, Estelle Parsons, Tonya Pinkins, Theresa Rebeck, Daryl Roth, Susan Stroman, Linda Winer, and more.
The event, which will be open to the public, will be held 6-8 PM.
"This is just the first of many exciting in-person and online events planned for this season where we'll honor significant contributions of theatre women across all disciplines, who represent a broad array of ethnic, cultural, and racial backgrounds,” said LPTW Co-President Katrin Hilbe in an earlier statement.
The organization previously announced its season will feature public interviews and shared dates for the Lucille Lortel Awards, Theatre Women Awards, and Rachel Crothers Leadership Award.
Hilbe and Ludovica Villar-Hauser currently serve as co-presidents of LPTW, joined on the leadership team by Executive Vice-Presidents Kim Marie Jones and Wendy Peace, Vice President of Membership Lynnie Godfrey, Co-Treasurers Melody Brooks and Diane Davis, and Co-Secretaries Cheryl Davis and Susan Izatt. Serving as Directors at Large are Michole Biancosino, Karen Cecilia, Christine Cirker, Annemarie Hagenaars, Tanya Khordoc, Jenna Lazar, Illana Stein, and Cynthia Straus.
Women working in the theatre industry are eligible to join the membership organization, which champions women in the field, and advocates for increased equity and access for all women in theatre.
