Four Seattle agencies are coming together to support "Disclosure," a one-woman show about working in the media and advertising industry faced with sexism, misogyny and personal tragedy.
DNA co-founder and CEO Alan Brown first saw Stephanie Peirolo’s performance last summer and sought to utilize his resources to bring the show to his agency and the broader industry.
“I was one of very few men in the audience when Stephanie first took her show on the stage in Seattle. I felt it was important for men in particular, to see this so they could better understand the issues women continue to face,” said Brown, adding that the crux of the issue is the non-disclosure agreements that many women sign that keep them from telling their stories. It's something that has to change, he says.
Now Brown, together with the female leaders of three other Seattle agencies —Possible, WongDoody and Media+ — are financially underwriting the production to make tickets available for as low as $5 for the 3pm Sunday, February 10th performance at the Cornish Playhouse. All proceeds go to the Jubilee Women’s Center.
