A Discussion: Designers and Directors

Monday evening 9/29/2014, The League of Professional Theatre Women hosted a Networking Mondays Panel, “A Discussion: Designers and Directors,” featuring some of the most stellar names in theatre, with Broadway Costume Designer Carrie Robbins (Grease),  Off-Broadway Director Jo Bonney (Public Theatre), Regional Sound Designer Rachel Hauck (Mark Taper Forum),  new comers Sound Designer Elisheba Ittoop (Signature Theatre), Lighting Designer Christina Watanabe (Living Theatre), and Movement/Choreographer Shigeko Suga (Pan Asian Rep / La Mama-Ellen Stewart’s Great Jones Company).  The panel was moderated by Networking Committee Co-Chairs, Richarda Abrams and Romy Nordlinger (both Actresses and LPTW Board Members).

The prevailing message of the panel to up and coming designers was: “Lean in, want to tell the story, be hungry, if you like what you are doing keep doing it and  be open to inspiration.”
