The Dramatist Guild embraces technology through teleconferencing

The Dramatist Guild is a great resource for just about anyone involved in the musical theatre business. Over the pandemic, they've provided all sorts informative performing arts related discussions online. The sessions are typically broadcast to their members on Zoom and consist of a moderator and several leading experts on the topic at hand. 

We were recently invited to participate in a discussion on the various issues regarding copyright. Everyone can agree that it's helpful to listen to the experts advice and join in on the discussion with specific questions. Doug Wright, a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, provided several real world anecdotes of some of his dealings with copyright issues while other members concentrated on case law and how the guild provides resources to their members. It was a fabulous discussion and very informative too.
