THE COLLABORATOR PARTY – Live From Houston Hall

June 7, 2015, 7pm EST

A SPECIAL TONY PARTY FOR THE THEATRE SOUND COMMUNITY AND ALL OF OUR COLLABORATORS.

On June 11, 2014, the Tony Awards announced that the awards for Best Sound Design of a Play and Best Sound Design of a Musical would be eliminated from the list of eligible categories. The response in the theatre community was immediate and intense: in just a few short weeks, more than 32,000 people signed an online petition asking that the decision be reversed.

Soon after, an idea was formed. If the Tony Awards weren’t able to celebrate the achievements by sound designers on Broadway this year, then it’s up to sound designers to celebrate themselves. It’s time for a party.

At first, it was going to be a party only for the theatre sound community. But then we realized that there were so many others who not only had lent their support to theatre sound designers, but were also not being recognized with awards either. So, we opened up the idea of this party to include other important and unrecognized contributors to the theatrical process: projection designers, fight directors, stage managers, prop designers. Most importantly, we wanted to invite anyone who believes that sound design is an important artistic component in making theatre. In short, our collaborators.

This is The Collaborator Party.
