Women Beware Women: If Female Playwrights Aren't Getting Produced, The Fault May Not Be All Men's
A study released this week found "concrete evidence that women who are authors have a tougher time getting their work staged than men - … [and] that women who are artistic directors and literary managers are the ones to blame." The research also indicates that there is "a shortage of good scripts by women" and that "[p]lays and musicals by women [running on Broadway] sold 16 percent more tickets a week and were 18 percent more profitable [than works by men] over all."
