OMAHA – Broadway producer Jenna Segal will visit the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) on Tuesday, Feb. 9 to discuss her experiences developing and producing theatre, as well as films, television and internet content that focus on the inclusion and equality of women.
Segal will speak in Mammel Hall’s auditorium (6708 Pine St.) from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public; it will include an audience Q&A. Parking permits will not be required to park in lots 4 and 5 during the event.
Segal, president of production company Segal NYC, is the lead producer of the Broadway-bound musical “GIGI,” based on the Colette novella and 1958 Academy Award-winning film. She began her career in political talk shows, including programs on CNBC and CNN. Later Segal moved to the VIACOM networks (MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon) working in production management development on live shows, animation, live events, variety shows, documentaries and extreme sports programming.
“Ms. Segal’s visit sheds light on the interdisciplinary nature of the UNO School of the Arts, the UNO College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media, and our university as a whole,” said Adrian Duran, associate professor of Art History and organizer of the event. “Her experience and success speaks across our disciplinary boundaries, bringing together elements of theatre, film and television, entrepreneurship, public and media relations, marketing, music and numerous other areas of study. We hope to attract students, staff, faculty, and members of the public with diverse interests.”
Segal's visit is sponsored by the UNO College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media’s Cultural Enrichment Fund, which seeks to provide opportunities for UNO students to experience and engage with the arts.
