Samuel French, Playbill & HowlRound partner to present #IdentityWeek
Samuel French, Playbill and HowlRound are partnering to present #IdentityWeek, a four-day panel event, Sept 27 - 30, exploring racial, cultural, sexual, and gender identity in the theatre. This year's event was created in response to the issues of identity, inclusion, and representation onstage being at the forefront of our industry's collective conversation. Through these panels, Samuel French, Playbill and HowlRound hope to provide a safe, respectful space where artists, activists, and members of the industry can come together for discussion, debate and more. This marks Samuel French's third year of partnering with HowlRound for panel events, and the first collaboration with Playbill. All panels will be held at the Vineyard (108 E 15th St). They are open to the general public and will be live-tweeted by Samuel French, as well as live-streamed by HowlRound. A companion series of essays can be found on HowlRound throughout the week as well. Reservations are encouraged, but not required. #IdentityWeek panel discussions will also be live-streamed on the web; visit www.Playbill.com/IdentityWeek for more details and to tune in.
