Reintroducing Abigail Vega, Creative Producer!
We are thrilled to welcome Abigail Vega, former Latinx Theatre Commons producer, back to the HowlRound team in a new role: creative producer. Starting today, she will work closely with current producer Ramona King until Ramona’s departure at the end of August, at which time she will take over management of the journal, the National Playwright Residency Program, and convenings.
Abigail is an organizer, theatremaker, and one of the founding members of the Freelance Artist Resource Producing Collective, which was entered into the Library of Congress’ web archives in May 2020. She was the first producer of the Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) from 2014–2019. With the LTC she produced eleven convenings in Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, Princeton, Austin, Miami, and New York.
Her writing can be found in Micha Espinosa's Monologues for Latino Actors and her directing work has been seen in Chicago, Atlanta, and Houston. She is also the creative producer of death, me, dying tree, a participatory performance project that explores, unburdens, and cleanses our cultural relationship with death. Abigail is a graduate of the NALAC Leadership Institute and was a participant in the Leadership U: One-on-One Mentorship Program, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by Theatre Communications Group, where she worked under Dr. P. Carl and David Dower at ArtsEmerson.
Pre-pandemic, Abigail enjoyed traveling, going to theatre festivals, and eating great food. Now, she mostly spends her time producing on Zoom, reading e-books, and engaging in socially distanced grocery shopping.
Please join us in welcoming Abigail back!
