Women Wonders: “Bring It On’s” Amanda Green Becomes First Woman President Of The Dramatists Guild

“Un-Block The Music” wants to shout out Congratulations to lyricist-composer Amanda Green for being elected the first woman president of The Dramatists Guild, the national, professional membership trade association of theatre writers, including playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.

If you don’t recognize Amanda’s name, you don’t know what you are missing! “Un-Block The Music” profiled The Bring It On composer early last summer. Her journey to Broadway is a fascinating one you should read about. In addition to Bring It On, she had great success challenging the traditional Broadway mold with other successful musicals like High Fidelity and Hands On Hardbody.https://unblockthemusic.blog/2020/06/10/women-wednesdays-lyricist-amanda-green-talks-about-her-broadway-path-with-the-boystom-kitt-lin-manuel-miranda/

Also elected to the Dramatist Guild Board is Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (An Octoroon) as vice president, Kristoffer Diaz (The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity) as secretary, and Christine Toy Johnson (founder of AAPAC) as treasurer.

Congrats to all! Can’t wait to see what the new group brings to the table!
