Casting decisions that WWSF wholeheartedly endorses – women taking on more and more male roles; the gender disparity question, now in musical theatre; Rivendell Theatre Ensemble to present WOMEN AT WAR; two local playwrights and their work, and new shows to see, in this week’s edition.
The gender parity conversation continues, on and off-stage; Women’s Project Theater announces its 2014-15 season; Rapture, Blister, Burn concludes a hugely successful run; and plays to see in the Bay Area this week.
The Counting Actors Project is managed by Bay Area actor Valerie Weak, and began in June 2011 on her own blog. Works by Women San Francisco began hosting the project in February 2014.
A tribute to Ruth Draper, arguably America’s greatest woman playwright, and a question of identity for a woman playwright who is also a woman on color, in the ongoing debate about gender disparity. Plus, three great shows to see in this week’s edition.
ICWP announces the 2014 50/50 Applause Awards, a recent study shows off-Broadway gender gap, and a lineup that includes great shows in the city, including a free stage reading!
Aurora Theatre’s insanely fantastic, much-acclaimed Rapture, Blister, Burn was the reason for our 23rd Meetup, and did it live up to our expectations! 2013’s Pulitzer Prize finalist is every bit the scorcher we’d expected it to be – and then some!
