coming soon: BROAD SPECTRUM
meet Monet: she's talented, she's smart as fire, and soon she'll be authoring a theatrical column on the site called Broad Spectrum, a monthly discussion forum that explores gender, identity, artistic process, and culture from the perspective of a female playwright of color living and working in the big bad City (New York). we're very excited to have her on as a contributor and we can't wait for her to share her experiences working behind the scenes in the theater world - she's more than qualified for the job! keep your eyes out (and inboxes open) for her first installment in the next edition of our monthly newsletter, Under the Wire.
