Leigh Silverman '88

Tony-nominated director Leigh Silverman '88 made history with the 2018 Broadway production of The Lifespan of a Fact by assembling the first all-female design team on Broadway.

"I started Green Acres in the third grade, coming from public school where I had been really struggling. I didn’t seem to learn the ways other did and I needed a smaller classroom, more specialized attention, and a strong focus on the arts, creativity, and progressive ideas. It was here I found my people, here I gained a sense of wonder about the world and real interest in learning more about it."
