Celebrating the members of the League of Professional Theatre Women


Blog30, our daily blog, celebrating the individual members who make up the League – all around the globe – launched January 1, 2012.

The League of Professional Theatre Women celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012 – Turning 30: Celebrating Our Legacy, Creating Our Future.

Developed and administered by League members, Melanie Sutherland, Lanie Zipoy, Susan Bernfield, and Shaun Bennet Fauntleroy, Blog30 celebrates the individual women engaged in a broad range of theatrical disciplines who make up the League, each with a story to tell and a distinct point of view.  In their featured entries, members respond to a series of trigger questions – both serious and silly – designed to help them reach beyond their bio to talk about what inspires or entertains them in a deeper, often more idiosyncratic way:

* Where do you look for inspiration?
* What’s your favorite book / movie / line from a play / pop culture guilty pleasure / cocktail?
* What play or production changed your life?
* Is there anything you still dream of doing?
* I feel most like myself when I ….
* What is your best escape?
* What’s the one thing nobody knows about you?

Each blog post also includes the League member’s discipline(s), current geographic location, and short bio.
