Sisterhood: Girl Power on Broadway

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 16 Iyar 5781

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

From Ethel Merman to Patti LuPone, strong female performers have always held the spotlight on Broadway. Behind the scenes, however, has been a different story. Debra Dickinson, a former professional actress, singer and director and now lecturer of the history of musical theater in the School of Continuing Studies at Rice University, will explore some of the women who have broken the barrier in a predominantly male-based hierarchy of directors and choreographers. She will also examine ground-breaking musicals that present empowered female characters. Video clips of scenes featuring such characters will be shown from Gypsy, Wicked, The Lion King, The Secret Garden and The Producers.

NOTE: This program will be held online through Zoom. There is no charge for this program, but reservations are a must. Please RSVP online below, or contact the Sisterhood office at 713.529.5771, ext. 233 or Zoom information will be sent to those who register prior to the program.
