Broadway & Beyond hosts its first hybrid networking event, Access for Stage Managers of Color, September 12 from 10:30 AM-5 PM ET. Based in New York City, the event welcomes attendees both in-person and virtually.
The organization launched a $100,000 fundraiser to support travel and housing costs for those in attendance at the event, and other related fees, with Thomas Schumacher and Broadway Cares matching $35,000 in donations.
