Two stage favorites will take part in the Drama League's In Conversation series, which approaches the conclusion of its spring lineup. Taylor Mac (writer of Broadway's Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus) will speak April 22; Transparent star and two-time Tony winner Judith Light will appear May 1 at the Drama League Theater Center in Tribeca.
Mac, who uses the pronoun "judy," is an actor, playwright, producer, and director. A recipient of the MacArthur Foundation's "Genius" Grant and a Pulitzer Prize finalist for A 24-Decade History of Popular Music, Mac makes judy's Broadway debut as a playwright this spring with Gary. The comedy, starring Nathan Lane, Kristine Nielsen, and Julie White, officially opens April 21 at the Booth Theatre. Mac’s talk will be moderated by Drama League Education Manager Nilan Johnson.
Light, who won back-to-back Tonys for Other Desert Cities and The Assembled Parties, is a four-time Emmy nominee—including two nods for Transparent and, most recently, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. Drama League Executive Artistic Director Gabriel Stelian-Shanks will moderate the talk, shedding light on the performers Hollywood and theatrical triumphs.
The Drama League’s In Conversation series grants audiences the chance to witness discussions of the art and careers of America's leading theatre makers in an intimate venue. The spring lineup also includes the previously announced conversation with Aaron Sorkin and Bartlett Sher of Broadway's To Kill a Mockingbird, set for April 24.
