(music) (APPLAUSE) A very warm welcome to the American Theatre Wing
seminar on “Working in the Theatre.” I’m Isabelle Stevenson.
I’m President of the American Theatre Wing. And once again, we are coming to you from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. These seminars offer a rare opportunity to hear from discussions of the realities of working in the theatre, from an extraordinary list of performers, producers, playwrights, designers, casting directors, press agents, union and guild leaders, all the people that make up “Working in the Theatre.” And since the Wing first introduced these seminars, some twenty-five years ago, there have been over a thousand of Broadway’s and Off-Broadway’s best, which have come to these seminars as our guests.
