Works by Women

Supporting theatrical work written, directed and/or designed by women.

News from around the Web

What a week for women and theater. On Sunday night, the Tony Awards recognized the top plays and musicals on Broadway. Two of the four big prizes — Best Musical Revival and Best Play — were directed by women — Diane Paulus and Pam MacKinnon, respectively. Both were nominated for directing Tonys — musical for Paulus and play for MacKinnon.

In other news, Meryl Streep made headlines for her speech at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards. She chided Hollywood studios for the under-representation of women behind the camera. Read her comments at The Hollywood Reporter web site.

The Women’s Project‘s current production in New York City is a collaboration among the writers, directors and producers of its two-year Lab.  Here’s a slamming review by NYTheatre.com for We Play for the Gods.

    Way to go, Meryl! I think it’s so wonderful that she’s been so “loud” with her support of women’s rights and women in the arts for the past years (ok–forever) what with the American Women’s History Museum project, consciously choosing female directors for her past few films, and making speeches like this. What a woman. She’s such a goddess.
