Spotlight on: Lobby Displays

When students began ignoring dramaturgical lobby displays at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, student dramaturg Aria Velz decided to take a new approach. She created a series of dramaturgically-driven installation art pieces that not only conveyed important information but also engaged the audience in the feeling of the production as soon as they stepped foot in the lobby. Examples of Velz's work on "Spring Awakening" and "Trojan Women: A Love Story" are below. -Amy Freeman and Jacqueline Goldfinger, rVPs, Philly Metro Region


Philly LMDA Gets a Strike With Bowling Event

There might not have been many strikes or spares on the lanes on March 10, but dramaturgs from the Philly Metro region LMDA and playwrights from the Foundry, an organization that supports the development of emerging playwrights in Philadelphia, had an enjoyable time networking, socializing and knocking down a few  pins. 16 people attended the event, which kicked off at 6pm at Lucky Strike Lanes in Center City, Philadelphia. Thank you to LMDA for supporting the event!
