Great piece in the Seattle Times (with a video below) on how strong a town Seattle is for women theatre directors. Here's a comment from Kate Whoriskey who runs the Intiman Theatre about how things have changed for women directors in the country.

An older woman director I respect once gave me some advice...She said if I want to move ahead I should only work with male designers, because you won't be taken seriously if you have a bunch of women around you...I realize for her that strategy worked. Her generation was afraid of being marginalized. But I think women now have the freedom to make different choices.

And Seattle Rep which 10 years ago did not have a single female director for its eight show season, this year half of its shows have female directors.
