Cause Célèbre, a new theatre company, premiered on Sunday, December 9, 2007 at The Players and was a great success. Created by Food For Thought’s Founding Artistic Director, Susan Charlotte, Cause Célèbre is devoted to fostering an enhanced understanding of psychological, physical and social issues. Each month a play(s) related to a particular cause will be presented by our finest actors. Proceeds will go to a foundation connected to the cause. The Board of Directors includes an illustrious group of women of the theatre: Marian Seldes, Joan Copeland and June Springer. Writer Ellen Violett is a strong supporter.
Cause Célèbre has several purposes:
1--To connect theatre with different causes 2—To provide visibility for different causes. 3—To educate the public 4—To offer proceeds from the ticket sales of each show to a foundation connected to the specific cause of that month
