Ralph Sevush: Tonight, I have the good fortune of having some good friends here to talk about an interesting issue, and the better privilege of not having to talk too much myself. I’m going to introduce our panel. On the end is composer Scott Frankel, composer of Grey Gardens. Playwright Peter Parnell, adaptor of, among other things, The Cider House Rules and Q.E.D. The Guild’s Director of Business Affairs, David Faux, who will be moderating the panel this evening. Sarah Douglas, agent with Abrams Artists; Kilburg Reedy, attorney with Cowan, DeBaets Abrahams & Sheppard; and Jason Baruch with the aptly titled agency of Sendroff & Baruch.
