Theatre Ideas On the Road

The date I will be participating in the post-show discussion following Mike Daisey's How Theatre Failed America has been set: June 15th. Details of other panelists still to follow, but here is the basic info on Mike's website:
Each Sunday, a roundtable forum with theater artists and administrators will follow the performance. Slated guest include: Eric Bogosian (Talk Radio), Robert Brustein (Founder of Yale Repertory Theatre and American Repertory Theatre), James Bundy (Dean, Yale School of Drama), Jim Nicola (Artistic Director, New York Theatre Workshop), Richard Nelson (Conversations in Tusculum), Lisa Kron (2.5 Minute Ride, Well), Maria Dizzia (Eurydice), Gideon Lester (Artistic Director, American Repertory Theatre), Maria Goyanes (Producer, 13P), Paige Evans (Lincoln Center) and others in direct conversation with working actors, technicians, designers and independent producers of the American theater. The audience is invited to stay for the roundtable forums that will immediately follow Sunday evening performances.
I'll be in NYC through June 17th, and leave the morning of the 18th.

I'll also be in Denver for the National Performing Arts Conference from June 11 - 14. Let me know if we should try to get together!
