Terry’s Picks: Sara Bareilles, Male Privilege, Julie Schumacher
image

Sing it: The Sara Bareilles musical Waitress, based on the 2007 Adrienne Shelly indie film, will open on Broadway April 24th. NYWIFT partners with the Adrienne Shelly Foundation on grants for women filmmakers. It features the gorgeous and heartbreaking song “She Used to Be Mine”– give it a listen!

Living proof: Yet another man with zero directing experience is helming a
big budget feature – screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith will direct The Flash. Male privilege at its finest.

Funny lady: Congrats to Julie Schumacher, who received the 2015 Thurber Prize for American Humor for her novel Dear Committee Members. Even better: the other two finalists were women, too!
