How Theater Serves Community, and Community Serves Theater
Friday 3/10 at 5:00 eastern time
Community Gathering on Zoom - register with the bright red reservation box to receive the Zoom link. These gatherings are a service for the theater community and are offered free for TRU members; we ask that non-members help keep us running by making a donation or joining as a member.
In the room: Emily Weiner, artistic director and Susan Goodwillie, managing director of Houses on the Moon Theater Company; and Gayle Waxenberg, founding executive director of NewYorkRep. Meet two New York City not-for-profits that are deeply dedicated to raising awareness, challenging social injustices and amplifying unheard voices. Learn the different ways they confront crucial issues and how audiences – and community – play a key role in their programming and identity. How has their mission evolved since their founding? How did they survive shutdown, and are audiences back yet? And what more do they hope to accomplish in the future?
