Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) has made changes to its Showcase Code for the first time since 2009. Representatives from the League of Independent Theater (LIT) and attorney Eric Goldman were involved in ongoing conversations about these changes over the last several years with AEA, and can shed light on the Equity perspective and the evolution of Equity’s position about this and other agreements, as well as offer insights into best practices and productive ways for both indie and commercial theater to work within Equity guidelines. Equity member Marlene Thorn Taber will join us to explain the New Media agreements, and if time permits, answer questions about changes to other Equity agreements, including the Stage Reading Guidelines. Chris Aniello will discuss the role of general manager in interfacing with Equity and other unions.
Doors open at 7:00pm for networking and refreshments, roundtable introductions of everyone in the room will start at 7:30pm – come prepared with your best one-minute summary of who you are, and what you need.
