Created by The Dramatists Guild Fund in 2009 and conceived by playwright Jonathan Reynolds, The Legacy Project documents and preserves the creative process of America’s most esteemed dramatists in a series of filmed conversations between prominent and promising playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists.
The third volume of The Legacy Project, the first of the series available for free online, is possible with support from Roe Green, DGF Board member and President of the Roe Green Foundation.
“Thanks to Roe Green and her support of The Legacy Project, making Volume III free to the public on YouTube, students and writers of all ages will have access to the insights shared by some of our most influential writers in the American Theater.”
– Andrew Lippa, President of the Dramatists Guild Fund
“The Legacy Project has been such a valuable resource for students and an inspiration for writers across the country. I am proud to help The Dramatists Guild Fund continue this series and make it available on YouTube so we can all experience being in the room with Alan Menken, Tony Kushner, Gretchen Cryer, and the other master writers in Volume III.”
– Roe Green, DGF Board member and Executive Producer of The Legacy Project:Volume III
