Join O’Neill Center artistic directors Wendy Goldberg, of the National Playwrights Conference, and Paulette Haupt, of the National Music Theater Conference, and distinguished alumni—Adam Gwon, Sarah Hammond, Deborah Zoe Laufer—for a look at the O’Neill’s influential role as a theatrical laboratory over the last 50 years.
As planning for the summer 2015 season gets underway, what is the process for gathering and selecting the next great American plays and musicals?
The winner of two Tony Awards®, the O’Neill—named after Eugene—focuses on the script and guides writers, directors and other theater artists through their journeys from creation to production. Classic works originating at the O’Neill include John Guare’s The House of Blue Leaves, Wendy Wasserstein’s Uncommon Women and Others and August Wilson’s Fences, as well as the musicals Violet, Avenue Q and In the Heights.
