This past Monday evening, September 29, 2014, the League of Professional Theatre Women (LPTW) hosted a Networking Mondays Panel: A Discussion: Designers and Directors

The prevailing message of the panel to up and coming designers was: "Lean in, want to tell the story, be hungry, if you like what you are doing keep doing it and be open to inspiration.

The evening featured some of the premiere women designers and directors including Broadway Costume Designer Carrie Robbins (Grease), Off Broadway Director Jo Bonney (Public Theatre), Regional Sound Designer Rachel Hauck (Mark Taper Forum), new comers Sound Designer Elisheba Ittoop (Signature Theatre), Lighting Designer Christina Watanabe (Living Theatre), and Movement/Choreographer Shigeko Suga (Pan Asian Rep / La Mama-Ellen Stewart's Great Jones Company).

The panel was moderated by LPTW Networking Committee Co-Chairs, Richarda Abrams and Romy Nordlinger (both Actresses and LPTW Board Members).
