The Women’s Committee of the Eastern Equal Employment Opportunity Committee will be hosting a panel discussion on gender-neutral casting entitled LIMITLESS CASTING: Could the Best Man for the Part Be a Woman? on Tuesday, March 29th at 6:30pm in the Council Room. In an age when men in drag are commonplace in theatre, why are women playing male roles so rare? Confirmed for the panel are:

  • Deborah Wright Houston, former Artistic Director of the Kings County Shakespeare Company
  • Richard Schechner, NYU/Tisch Performance Studies
  • Rebecca Patterson, Artistic Director, The Queen's Company
  • Joanne Zipay, Artistic Director, Judith Shakespeare Company
  • Terry Berliner, Director
  • With more panelists pending

Refreshments will be provided. For more information, contact Pearl Brady at or 212 869 8530 ext 346.
