As Artistic Director of SITI Company, Bogart has conducted a series of intimate interviews with major artists and cultural thinkers in front of a live audience at SITI Company's New York rehearsal studio. In these conversations, she and her guests have discussed such free-ranging topics as the driving forces in their work, the paths their lives have taken and their visions for the future of the field.
On March 5, Bogart will be in conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive, The Baltimore Waltz, The Mineola Twins) and two-time Pulitzer Prize-finalist and recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, Sarah Ruhl (The Clean House, Eurydice, Dead Man's Cell Phone), who studied under Vogel at Brown University.The evening will conclude with all three playwrights signing copies of their work. The event will be available online as a live video webcast at www.tcg.org/fifty/playwrights.cfm and at www.thegreenespace.org.
