Meet The Lady is an NYC variety show that pays tribute to women in the performing arts. Hosted at 92YTribeca since Spring 2010, these events are a collage of film clips, performances, presentations, and live interviews with fascinating talents from every medium. Past guests include Louise Lasser, Amy Sedaris, Beth Grant, and Nellie McKay.
In addition to events, Meet The Lady maintains an archive of reclaimed photographs (mostly attained via flea markets and rubbish heaps) that present everyday women as objects of personal or historical fascination.
The Meet The Lady tumblr blog (our main page) was founded by Tom Blunt and Chris Kelly in 2009. Frequent contributors to our site and shows include Colin Shepherd, David Archer, Roslyn Hart, and Sonya Moore.
