Presented by the League of Professional Theatre Women’s Edith Meiser Oral History Project, the event will be held in the Bruno Walter Auditorium at 6 PM.
The ongoing Project, according to press notes, "chronicles and documents the contributions of significant theatre women in many fields. Interviews with such outstanding women are videotaped and housed in the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center." The project is made possible by a grant from the Edith Meiser Foundation.
