On Monday, November 6 at 6 p.m., the League of Professional Theatre Women (LPTW), dedicated to championing women in theater since its inception and an authority at the forefront of the conversation about gender parity in American theater for 35 years, is presenting 11-Time Tony Award-winning producer Daryl Roth.

The event will take place in the Bruno Walter Auditorium of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts on 65th Street & Amsterdam Avenue.

"We are thrilled that Daryl Roth, responsible for so much exceptional work on and off Broadway and in the West End, with multiple awards and with a reputation for being the most philanthropic producer in the business, and proud Co-Chair of the LPTW's Advisory Committee, will be interviewed by Award-Winning Drama Critic Linda Winer for our next Oral History interview," says producer Betty Corwin. "It will, no doubt be an extraordinary conversation between two outstanding theatre women."

This project, now in its impressive 25th year, is produced by Betty Corwin and made possible by major support from the Edith Meiser Foundation covering interviews with such notables as Billie Allen, Mercedes Ruehl, Tyne Daly, Patti LuPone, Christine Ebersole, Kia Corthron, Donna Murphy, Frances McDormand, Laura Linney and many others.

The ongoing Oral History Project chronicles and documents the contributions of significant theatre women in all fields. The interviews are videotaped and preserved for posterity in the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.

Admission is free; seats are available on a first-come-first-seated basis. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and it is recommended that members of the public arrive at the Bruno Walter Auditorium on 65th Street & Amsterdam Avenue by 5 p.m. to secure a seat.
