My Lifelong Love: An Evening With Georgia Stitt and Friends at the Garrick Theatre, Sunday 26th October 2014

Unless I’m a complete philistine, I’m sure I wasn’t the only person arriving at the Garrick Theatre last night for “My Lifelong Love, An Evening with Georgia Stitt and Friends” thinking ‘Georgia Stitt, who is she?’ Well, after a couple of hours of listening to her music, I can confidently say that this American born composer, lyricist, arranger, conductor, musical director and occasional singer is proof that the ancients got it wrong when they said you can be a Jack of all trades and master of none.

Stitt says, “There’s a big group of [female writers in musical theatre], but we’re still a minority and a novelty. One of the things we’re working with in the Lilly Foundation is to examine why that is — are women not creating work at the same level or frequency as men, or not submitting their work, or not being showcased in the same way? We are  looking at theaters across the country to examine how many productions are being produced of work by women, and how far we are from gender parity.” — Read more HERE.
