About The Legacy Project
An initiative of The Dramatists Guild Fund, The Legacy Project documents and preserves the creative process of America’s most esteemed dramatists in a series of filmed conversations, each featuring an established stage author (or team of collaborators) and an emerging one. These videos serve to heighten awareness of writing and composing for the stage and are intended for an audience of students, historians, aficionados of the theatre, and the public in general. They provide a unique window into the thinking of America’s most prominent and promising playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.
The Legacy Project producers include Nancy Ford, Carol Hall, Peter Ratray and Jonathan Reynolds. The interviews are filmed and directed by Jeremy Levine and Landon Van Soest of Transient Pictures.
The Legacy Project was originally conceived by Jonathan Reynolds.
