I'm Jenny, and I will become an alum this May. I'm posting to ask if any of you have tips on finding a job in theater in NYC, as this is what I would like to do. Ideally, I would like to work in literary management, but this is flexible.
Any advice or any help would be hugely appreciated. I'm sort of terrified to not have the cushy pillow of academia to fall back on any more... But you've all been there, done that. Help a girl out?

I'm wondering if we could rattle off a list of SLC alumni or SLC-related theater and film production companies (NYC or otherwise). I might finally be in a position to help build both a film company and theater company in Austin (totally informally - NOT my day job, my art job sort of thing) and am looking to connect with others in the film/arts admin/theater world. Maybe have some sort of Sadie Lou sister/buddy system?
Ones I already know of are:
Cutting Ball Theater (San Francisco) - Adriana Baer '04 Studio 42 (NYC) - Laura von Holt aka Miss Cuba Gooding Jr '02 I know some people worked for Elevator Repair and The Kitchen in NYC.
So you're mostly my friends. And you all know each other and are friends with each other. So ahem. I guess the next order of business is to get invites from people who are not my friends? But SLC alumni?
I noticed they have an alumni webboard up - - but no one ever, ever uses it. It would be cool if this was a space to get help on grad school/job searching/life searching stuff? Or you could find out about classmates . . . in greater detail than the Alumni magazine allows.
Like how many SLCers have you seen on TV this year?
