Honest Accomplice Theatre founders Maggie Keenan-Bolger and Rachel Sullivan will moderate the panel Expanding Representations of Gender Identity and Sexuality on Stage as part of the Women of Note series, in partnership with the New York Musical Festival.
Panelists for the July 23 event include casting director Rebecca Feldman, composer Brin Solomon, writer and performer EllaRose Chary, Stage & Candor founder Michelle Tse, playwright and composer Ty Defoe, and actor Aneesh Sheth.
The conversation will explore where past musical productions’ representations of gender and sexuality have been successful, what boundaries are still in place, and how we can continue to challenge the status quo in theatrical storytelling.
Honest Accomplice Theatre was founded in 2012 to explore issues that have been silenced and catalyze change through “the lens of women and the trans experience.”
