TRC Plaque Dedication Courtesy of Award-winning Actress Blythe Danner at NYPL

Rising Star Event at Symphony Space

The Rehearsal Club (TRC), the legendary rooming house for aspiring actresses that inspired the Ferber and Kaufman play “Stage Door” announces notable events for May 2022.

On Wednesday, May 11, the 53rd Street branch of The New York Public Library (18 West 53rd Street) will host the installation and dedication of a plaque commemorating the original location of The Rehearsal Club on West 53rd Street.

This plaque is made possible by a generous gift from Emmy-Award and Tony Award-winning actress Blythe Danner who is herself an alumna of The Rehearsal Club.

Four decades after the closure of the original residence in 1979, The Rehearsal Club has reopened its safe haven for deserving female talent at The Webster Apartments on West 34th Street. The revived Residency Program, conceived and executed by volunteer alumnae, offers room and board at affordable rates plus mentorships, workshops and networking opportunities.

Selected talented women will participate in the competition in the Leonard Nimoy Theatre, hosted by alumna Diane J. Findlay and judged by a panel of recognized talent agents. For tickets: Rising Star Event and Tribute to Carol Burnett | Symphony Space
