The Collaborator Party, headed by theatrical sound designers Lindsay Jones and John Gromada, announced that their event will return for its fourth year in New York City, after three years of the now legendary sold-out parties across the country. The Collaborator Party is the official Tony night party for the entire theatre community. This year, the main party will be held June 10, 2018 at Houston Hall (222 W. Houston St. in New York City) from 7pm-11pm EDT, with additional parties taking place simultaneously in Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles.
The Collaborator Party began in 2014, and quickly grew into a nationwide grassroots community that was founded in mutual celebration of everyone working in professional theatre. As word spread across social media about the original event, “satellite parties” became commonplace in various cities, and the entire event has been livestreamed around the world to thousands of online attendees.
This year, in an effort to further expand their reach into the theatre community, The Collaborator Party announced brand new co-hosts for the event: Rick Sordelet (fight director), Caite Hevner (projection designer), Jay Duckworth (props designer), Amanda Spooner (stage manager), Rona Siddiqui (music director), Jeff Harris (production manager, The Public Theater), Carol Fishman (general manager, Playwrights Horizons), Nikiya Mathis (hair designer), Jared Mezzocchi (projection designer), Barbara Cohig (scenic artist), and Cheryl Mintz (stage manager).
