Photo Coverage: Broadway Producers 'Launch' at the Friars Club

Some of Broadway's leading women producers lunched at the Friars Club today followed by a panel discussion moderated by Friar and Broadway producer Jamie deRoy. Ms. deRoy who happens to be the 8th woman inducted into the Friars (back in the day), guided the discussion of the distinguished Tony Award Winning group which included Susan Gallin (Other People's Money, Angels in America), Robyn Goodman (Avenue Q, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella), Mara Isaacs (Hadestown, McCarter Theater), Nelle Nugent (Latin History for Morons, For Colored Girls), and Daryl Roth (Kinky Boots, Indecent).

The Frank Sinatra Dining Room was filled with Producers, Investors, Theatre professionals, and theater lovers who were given an entertaining tutorial about the business of Broadway by these dynamic women.

This Friars event was not surprisingly produced by Jamie deRoy.

The Friars Club (Monastery) may be physically located Off Madison Ave but it's soul and members are really On Broadway.
