“Coming Home: Fostering an Artistic Family in Madison”
A talk by Jennifer Uphoff Gray, Artistic Director of the Forward Theater Company, Madison
Jennifer Uphoff Gray, Artistic Director of the Forward Theater Company (FTC) in Madison was the Blockstein Memorial Lecturer on Sunday, February 12, 2017. She spoke about her background (her local upbringing, Harvard education, NYC theater years) and how that led to her founding of Forward Theater. She reflected on the advantages and disadvantages she’s encountered as a woman along the pathway of her career, and about how she sees the role of FTC in the broader community. She described how her background – and gender – have perhaps positioned her to see the world that way.
