ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK Star To Host CHANGEMAKERS: A Celebration Of Women And StateraArts

Did you know that last year only 17% of creative leadership roles on Broadway were held by women? To help change the stage, The Green Room 42 presents Changemakers: A Celebration of Women and StateraArts on Thursday, August, 22nd at 7 PM. Join veterans from Broadway, Television, and Film for tales of sisterhood, challenges in the workplace, and overcoming adversity.

The evening will uplift, amplify, and advance female-identifying artists, featuring Tony-nominated Lyricist/Composer and award-winning performer Amanda Green (Hands on a Hardbody) and a panel talk led by Rachel Spencer Hewitt, founder of the Parent Artist Advocacy League. Broadway veteran and three-time SAG Award winner Dale Soules, widely-known as inmate Frieda Berlin on Orange Is The New Black, will host. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the StateraArts Mentorship program, the national organization that brings women into full and equal participation in the arts.

Cast members donating their talents include: Lianah Sta. Ana ("Miss Saigon"), Gina Naomi Baez ("She's Gotta Have It"), Alison Lea Bender ("We So Hapa"), Emily Borromeo ("Broadway Bounty Hunter"), Galway Girls (feat. Meredith Beck, Janice Landry, Caitlin McKechney), Carly Kincannon ("America's Sweethearts"), Liisi LaFontaine ("Dreamgirls"), Kara Lindsay ("Newsies"), Jennifer Lorae ("Hard Times"), Andrea Prestinario ("Side Show," Jeff Award), Kristine Reese ("Finding Neverland"), Hannah Rose ("Olay Live!"), America's Sweethearts (feat. Amanda Lea LaVergne, Annemarie Rosano, Sarah Stevens), and Aurelia Williams ("Once On This Island").

The evening is Directed and Produced by Mara Jill Herman with Assistant Direction by Ashley Ruth Jones and Music Direction by Julianne B. Merrill.
