Yet Another...

Tangentially, we should not forget Kathryn Smith, who has been the general director of Madison Opera since 2011. She continues to run a terrific company with innovative programming, outreach and expansion of existing events (think Opera in the Park, coming soon!), and keen attention to fiscal responsibility. All in the service of producing operas that easily hold their own against any other regional company in the US!

Forgot another one

Madison also has one of the few improvisational theatre companies led by a woman of color, Kristina Martinez. That style of theatre is often directed by white dudes. Atlas Improv stands out.

Edit

Forward's women centric season was 15-16, not 16-17. Just don't want anyone to get confused!

Otherwise, a FANTASTIC piece that gives a great snapshot of the many women that help make art here in our home state. Thank you for shining a spotlight on these women!

Forgot One -

Melanie Cain, Founder and Artistic Director of Fresco Opera Theatre. She is the driving force behind the organization, and is a true visionary, making a traditional art form relevant for a modern audience.
