Tony Award-winning producer and IU alumna Harriet Newman Leve will return to Bloomington this week as a visiting scholar in the College of Arts and Sciences.
She will make three appearances at IU: a public question-and-answer session from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Studio Theatre, a question-and-answer session accompanying the screening of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” at 7 p.m. Tuesday at IU Cinema and a lecture titled “Producing Theatre” presented by the University Players from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Wells-Metz Theatre.
Leve has worked as a co-producer on the Broadway production of “An American in Paris,” which opened in April 2015. She is a co-producer of “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” and New York-based and touring productions of “Stomp.”
Leve has also been involved in the Broadway productions of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2014),” “War Horse (2011)” and “La Cage Aux Folles (2010).”
All of Leve’s events are free and open to students. The screening of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” at IU Cinema is a free but ticketed event.
