Chicago Musical Theatre Director/Dramatist Exchange

Monday, December 7th, 2009, 7-9 PM
Goodman Theatre Club Mezz, 2nd Floor
170 North Dearborn Street, Chicago

This event will be co-hosted by Douglas Post (Chicago Regional Rep, DG), and Elizabeth Margolius (Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director of DirectorsLabChicago).

This two-hour networking session will introduce Chicago-area dramatists who are composers, lyricists and librettists to directors who are working in the Chicago area and are interested in new musicals. After a brief introduction to each other, dramatists and directors may mingle and talk further. If you would like to attend, please e-mail Elizabeth Margolius at It is important that we receive your response no later than Wednesday, November 25th. The first 20 directors who respond will receive a reservation to the event. However, in order to secure a reservation, you must submit a statement with your initial e-mail. This statement should consist of three things: (1) your contact information, (2) your professional biography (one paragraph only, written in the third person) and (3) an artistic statement outlining the type of musical stage work which most interests you (one paragraph only). All statements must be included within the body of your email. No attachments please! After we receive these materials, your reservation will be confirmed. Then, prior to the event, you will receive statements from all the dramatists attending as well as statements from the other directors.
