| Drinks With the Girls 1/26/15|
Join us for the kick-off of a new Coalition monthly event:
DRINKS WITH THE GIRLS
In the media today you often read about how biased the arts still are. Female producers and directors are an anomaly even now, and don't even think about female technicians. So let's change it. Let's bring together all the smart talented women we know (and ones we don't), put us all in one space, and get some s**t done!
The plan: Drinks!
Most independent projects start out as just that: an idea over coffee or cocktails that then grows into a fully realized production. For thousands of years that's the way women have moved the world: get everyone together for some social time and let's talk.
So we're starting an event once a month that brings together women from all over the arts. We'll find a bar, hunker down and just see what happens.
No agendas, no plans, just drinks with the girls.
Please join us for our kickoff night:
Monday, January 26th
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
79 Madison Avenue (corner of 28th Street)
Happy hour specials all evening!

BOB STILLMAN JOINS DRAMA DESK'S FIRST PANEL OF 2015
Bob Stillman, currently in the company of the Broadway hit
It's Only a Play, is an eleventh-hour addition to the upcoming Drama Desk panel discussion, "Art Imitates Art: The Enduring Appeal of Theater About Theater." The event, moderated by Drama Desk member Adrienne Onofri, will take place on Monday, January 12, 2014, at 6 pm at ASCAP headquarters, One Lincoln Plaza, 1900 Broadway (between West 63rd and West 64th Streets) in New York City.
Stillman joins the following previously announced panelists (in alphabetical order): Jim Brochu, the Drama Desk winning creator and star of Character Man and Zero Hour; T.R. Knight, who was recently seen off-Broadway in Pocatello, co-starred inA Life in the Theatre and Noises Off on Broadway, and is probably best known for his role in TV's Grey's Anatomy; five-time Tony Award nominee Jan Maxwell, who has played an actress in Follies, The Royal Family and To Be or Not To Be, and starred in City of Conversation last year at Lincoln Center Theater; playwright Sarah Ruhl whose Stage Kiss was produced last year by Playwrights Horizons, and who was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for In The Next Room, or The Vibrator Play and The Clean House; and Marilyn Sokol, whose many credits as a screen and stage actor include the theatrical-set plays Light Up the Sky, Scenery and In the Wings.
Admission to the panel discussion is $5 for Drama Desk members and all members of Coalition member organizations; $10 for non-members, with payment (cash or check only) at the door. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Because of security policies of the venue, advance reservations are requested.
