Photo Flash: Judith Light Hosts Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for The Drama League Theater Center

The Drama League opened it doors at their new space on May 23rd with a ribbon cutting hosted by Judith Light. The focal point of The Drama League Theater Center is the Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Studio Lab, a brand-new laboratory/development space for theater artists to create and hone work for future productions. It will also act as a flexible multi-purpose space for a variety of programming including educational opportunities, audience-focused series and special events. This will allow the Drama League to better serve the entire New York theater community - directors, audience, playwrights and actors. The Drama League Theater Center will offer artist residencies, play readings, open rehearsals, developmental workshops, lectures, classes, seminars, discussions, conferences, theatre-focused social gatherings and more.

The Drama League Theater Center brings world-class theater artists, emerging talents, and New York theatergoers together under one roof. The Center, located on the lobby level of the historic former AT&T Building at 32 Avenue of the Americas, is in the heart of TriBeCa's arts district. Celebrating the opening were Drama League Board members: Jano Herbosch, Betsy Turner, Elaine Wilson, Paula Mueller, Rebecca Gillan,

CeCe Black, Bonnie Comley, Paula Kaminsky Davis, Samantha Rudin Earls, Amy Eller, Leslie Feldman, Ellen Fox, Robert Jezowski , Richard Kushner, Susan Lang, Julie Meister, Donna Murphy, Kari Nettles, Harry Neyens, Arthur Pober, Annette Pfister, Gabriel Shanks, Barbara Steel , Caroline Stuart, Chad Stubbs, JoAnn Weisel and Nadine Wong. Other supporters on hand were: Bill Rudin, Stewart F. Lane, Lauren & Joe Pizza, Jill & Martin Handelsman, and Alyssa Renzi.
