Many thanks to The Lambs for recording our latest joint Harvardwood event featuring Helen Gallagher!
Acclaimed actress and acting teacher, Helen Gallagher, gave a talk at The Lambs about her great career in musical theater, soap operas, film and teaching the craft. Interviewed by Foster Hirsch, a profession of film at Brooklyn College and author of 16 books on theater and film. This was another great evening in collaboration with our friends at Harvardwood. The house was packed with members of The Lambs and Harvardwood, and friends and former students of Helen. Thanks to Lamb Magda Katz for videotaping Helen!Read more

Hi, Everybody! Our Spring Party is about to happen on May 18, and I'm looking forward to our big Summer Party in July, which is always one of our best events of the year! BUT--we don't yet have a place for it to happen! If you have a slightly larger than average NYC living room, or if you have access to a great party space that we can get for free or nearly free, do let me know! You can email me at email@example.com
Our friends at The Lambs have invited Harvardwood members to this performance of a Chekhov One-Act. When you RSVP to The Lambs, say that you're a Harvardwood member.
So far, we don't have a volunteer to host our wonderful Summer Party in July--so if you have a living room that's even slightly larger than the NYC average and would be willing to consider hosting, do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In general we're always looking for new (donated) spaces not just for parties but for concerts, interviews, talks, dinners, and all the other fascinating events we're putting together. If you have a space you can donate, do let us know!
As many of you know, there is an aggressive movement in Congress right now to abolish the National Endowment for the Arts. The last time there was a comparable effort was in 1995-7, when Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House and Jane Alexander was Chair of the NEA. Now our March 9 event with Jane Alexander has a different topic--but there will be a q&a, if anyone should want to ask her about this. This is an unusual opportunity, and I hope to see lots of you there! http://www.harvardwood.org/jane_alexander
Do you have an idea for a feature script? Or one in the drawer you’ve been meaning to edit? Looking for a group of supportive and committed writers to help take your scripting to the next level? If yes, then great news: the New York City HWP-Features program is back from hiatus and will begin on March 9th!
Applications will be accepted February 1 -15, 2017. All participants will be asked to submit a short writing sample, a bio or resume, and a paragraph stating what you'd like to work on with the group this spring and summer.Read more

The biggest single challenge we have in putting together our NYC events is coming up with the places to have them. You may have noticed that we had only one big party last year instead of our usual four—and Harvardwood members NEED parties!
So if you have a living room just modestly larger than average (if you've been to our parties you'll have a reasonably good idea of what I mean) and are willing to host one of our parties, that would be fabulous! But parties aren't our only events—we also need spaces for interviews, talks, concerts, all the things we love doing.
If you're able to arrange a space for us for any of our events, we'd love to hear from you! Email Spence Porter at email@example.com.
