Directors Council

The Drama League Directors Council was formed as a way to further embed artists in the decision-making process of our organization, establish peer-to-peer mentorship for Fellowship recipients, and have the nation’s leading directors guide programming as we expand our mission to support directors and lead in re-emergence strategies for Broadway and the American theater industry.

Alumni

Since 1984, The Drama League has supported directors’ careers through a series of programs formerly known as “The Directors Project.” Our fellowships and residencies have developed numerous artists, many of whom are now Artistic Directors, working on Broadway, or otherwise leading the field. Click below the list of artists who have passed through our doors.
