Our Turn: Women Directing Broadway

May 25, 2016

Cultural commentator and journalist Lisa Birnbach hosts a conversation with three of Broadway's most dynamic and influential directors … who happen to be women.

The "Great White Way" has historically been dominated by men. In 2004, only two new plays were directed by women. By 2013, women won both Tony awards for directing. Join longtime artistic director of the Manhattan Theatre Club and award winner Lynne Meadow, Tony award winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman, and Pam MacKinnon, Tony Award and Drama Desk winner, to hear how they broke through the velvet curtains and became sought-after directors on Broadway, and elsewhere.

92Y needs your help

Many of you have asked how you can help 92Y as we face tremendous financial losses due to COVID-19. You can help sustain our beloved institution and support the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to our community.

Thank you.
