Nelle Nugent, producer and general manager of dozens of Broadway and off-Broadway hits, was the inaugural lecturer of Carnegie Mellon University's Sylvia and David Steiner Speaker Series.
Nugent's lecture, titled "Nobody knows anything ... including me!" was inspired by William Goldman's memoir "Adventures in the Screen Trade," and used his premise as a launching point for her entertaining and enlightening discussion of her life and experiences as a producer of theater, film and television.
Nugent has won multiple awards for her work as a producer for theatre, film and television. Her impressive credits include some of Broadway's most successful shows, including such Tony Award winners and nominees as "Amadeus," "The Life and Times of Nicholas Nickleby," "The Dresser," "Home," "Mass Appeal," "The Gin Game," "The Glass Menagerie" and "Time Stands Still."
The speaker series, endowed by Sylvia and David Steiner, features business leaders in the arts, culture and entertainment industries.
