T Fellowship Program Announces Recipients

Stage Directions • Industry News • September 20, 2007

NEW YORK CITY — The T Fellowship Commitee has announced the accepted fellows for the inaugural year of the T Fellowship, a new theatre producing program inspired by the work of Broadway producer T. Edward Hambleton.  The 2007-2008 T Fellows are John Pinckard and Orin Wolf. The fellowship begins immediately.  

The T Fellowship was created in an effort to encourage a new generation of creative theatrical producers, those who initiate work from the ground up, following a path all their own. It was created to honor the legacy of Broadway producer T. Edward Hambleton by supporting and developing emerging theatrical producers.

The program is run by Columbia University's School of the Arts. The T Fellowship Committee members will serve as mentors to the selected fellows.

The T Fellowship is a one-year program. In the first phase, the fellows may take classes and apprentice/observe through placements in the field with working professionals.  Additionally, the fellows will each be working to identify and develop a new theatrical production.  During the second phase of the Fellowship, the fellows will produce and present the work they have developed.  The fellows will receive a stipend and funding for the development of the new work.

Benefactors of the fellowship include Christine Baranski, Carol Burnett, Len Cariou, Patricia Conolly, Alma Cuervo, Jane Curtin, Christopher Durang, Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, George Grizzard, A.R. Gurney, Sheldon Harnick, Rosemary Harris, Anne Jackson, John McMartin, Anne Meara, Jack O'Brien, Estelle Parsons, Jerry Stiller, Meryl Streep, Sada Thompson and Eli Wallach.  

T. Edward Hambleton founded the Phoenix Theatre with Norris Houghton in 1953, making it an early force in the Off-Broadway movement. After 29 consecutive New York seasons and 164 productions as managing director, T. Edward continued the Phoenix commitment by presenting challenging new productions of high artistic quality and assisting emerging playwrights.
