Description
The Drama Desk panel discussion covers various topics related to the casting of ethnic and disabled actors in Broadway productions due to the Actors' Equity decision to bar British actor Jonathan Pryce from acting in a Broadway production of the musical "Miss Saigon" (the union argued that the role should go to an actor of Asian ancestry), and the foundation of the Non-Traditional Casting Project, a nonprofit arts organization that lobbies for the hiring of minority actors. This organization created new casting rules, provided hundreds of jobs for minority actors, and helped to bring Jonathan Pryce back to the show.
