Playwrights Welcome is a national ticketing initiative developed for Dramatists Guild of America members (including playwrights, composers, and lyricists) by Samuel French along with the Dramatists Play Service, Dramatic Publishing, Music Theatre International, Playscripts, and Rodgers and Hammerstein. It actively promotes the idea that "attending theatre is an integral part to how writers learn their craft" and that "without their creativity and devotion" theatre would not exist.

As a spunky gal in touch with nature in the kingdom of Kashoogie, India S. Tyree portrays a unique Cinderella in the world-premiere production of Cinderella and Fella. In between performances, India took a few minutes to give us the inside scoop on her role in the musical.

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
