Our next A La Carte will discuss the question: Should white directors be allowed to stage black plays if there is a more suitable black director? Are theaters doing this to make money? To attract a different demographic? Who benefits from “colorblind” casting?
We have compiled a great panel of theater professionals: New York Playwright Kristoffer Diaz, Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director of DirectorsLabChicago Elizabeth Margolius, Artistic Director and Founding Ensemble member Derrick Sanders, Assistant Professor of Film/Video at Columbia College Vaun Monroe, Assistant Professor of Theatre at Northwestern University Harvey Young and Director of Marketing at Court Theatre Adam Thurman
Join us to discuss more on at The Digital Youth Network Monday, April 27, 2009 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
