In this Salon, we'll be learning from and asking questions of Patty about talent agencies and the management side of the business. As always, this event is limited to only 12 attendees, so you can be sure to have a great conversation and opportunities to discuss.
The Harvardwood Salon Series gives attendees the unique opportunity to engage in in-depth discussion with the featured guest in an intimate setting. Salons are only open to Harvardwood Members & Friends. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to find out how you may attend.
Patty Woo AB '79
Patty Woo has represented actors for film, television and stage for over 30 years. She opened her own talent agency in New York, and then partnered with Barbara Harter to form the Harter Woo Agency. Patty relocated to Los Angeles to open the west coast branch of HWA, and in the early 90s, merged that company with another to form TalentWorks, a bi-coastal full-service office. In 2007, she transitioned out of agenting and formed PATTY WOO MANAGEMENT, working with a select roster of actors.
Over the years, her clients have ranged from James Gandolfini to William Shatner, Wallace Shawn to Natasha Henstridge. As globalization has swept the entertainment industry, her roster now includes actors based not only in Los Angeles and New York, but throughout the US and as far away as London and Mumbai. Representation has also grown to include developing opportunities in writing, directing, producing and branding.
Patty has served on the boards of several theatre companies, most recently The Antaeus Company, an award-winning theatre ensemble that specializes in keeping the classics alive and relevant in today’s world. An inaugural Radcliffe Pitch, Patty still sings with many fellow alums in the Harvard Yardbirds, where she is the current Big ‘bird. She and her husband (and currently COVID-bound adult children) live in Encino.
