ATCA Connects | A conversation with playwright Paula Vogel
February 15, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm ESTFree
Join us on Tuesday, Feb. 15, 2022 at 8 p.m. EST for a conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel, hosted by ATCA member Wendy Rosenfield.
Vogel’s play “Indecent” was nominated in 2017 for an outstanding play Tony Award. Her Pulitzer Prize-winning play “How I Learned to Drive” opens on Broadway in April 2022 with the same three leading actors and director as when it premiered 25 years ago off-Broadway.
The pandemic pause has given Vogel the chance to work on a wave of projects, including producing a dozen works on-line by other playwrights in the “Bard at the Gate” project for the McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, New Jersey. She wrote her first memoir, “Travels Without Carl,” based on her cross-country road trip when she visited women’s bars through the Deep South and West, following the death of her brother from AIDS in 1988.
She has continued her playwriting workshops online, including a new one for veterans. Vogel, an acclaimed playwriting professor, mentor and theatrical guru — with many of her students going on to earn Pulitzer Prizes and Tony Awards of their own — is also halfway through a book on the art of playwriting.
In conversation with Vogel will be Wendy Rosenfield, the former editor-in-chief of Broad Street Review. Rosenfield was a theater critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer from 2006-2017, and was theater critic for the Philadelphia Weekly from 1995 to 2001. Follow her on Twitter @WendyRosenfield.
This event is free for ATCA members to attend, but purchasing a free ticket is required. The Zoom link will be sent to registrants by return email. A video of the event will be posted to the ATCA YouTube channel and the ATCA Facebook page at a later date.
