Dale Franzen (’89)

Dale Franzen (’89) reports, “I’m an eight-time Tony Award-winning lead producer on the 2019 ‘Best Musical’ Hadestown, now playing on Broadway. The show will launch its North America National Tour in fall 2020. I’m also a lead producer, with Elizabeth Weber and Don Franzen, on a new play Sisters in Law that had its West Coast premiere at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills in September and October. Featuring the relationship between Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O’Connor—two polar-opposite, modern-day legends—Sisters in Law celebrates a friendship that transcends political party, religion, and culture. I was also appointed by Mayor Garcetti to serve on the Board of Library Commissioners for the City of Los Angeles.”
