Ensemble Theatre’s own D. Lynn Meyers was recently chosen as one of four finalists for the Zelda Fichandler Award. The award, given by the Society of Directors and Choreographers Foundation (SDCF), recognizes an extraordinary director or choreographer who has made and continues to make a substantial contribution to the national arts landscape through theatre work. The third annual national award was presented to Blanca Zizka, Director of the Wilma Theatre in Philadelphia, on October 24th at a ceremony at the Arena Stage in Washington, DC that Ms. Fichandler founded 61 years ago.
Congratulations to Lynn for an honor well deserved for her unending commitment to local artists and the transformation of Over-the Rhine and the Gateway Quarter into a vibrant downtown neighborhood through the enrichment of the arts. It wouldn’t be happening without her!
