Rachel Chavkin's Tony Award acceptance speech got my attention. 

“I wish I wasn’t the only woman directing a musical on Broadway this season. There are so many women that are ready to go. There are so many artists of color who are ready to go. And we need to see that racial diversity and gender diversity reflected in our critical establishment too. This is not a pipeline issue. It is a failure of imagination by a field who’s job is to imagine the way the world could be. So let’s do it.”

 -Rachel Chavkin; Director, 2019 Tony Award Winner.
