Committee of Two
Committee of Two is a lighthearted new musical about aging ingenues who reunite to plan their college reunion.
Some 50 years after Joyce studied Speech at Northwestern University, her path crossed with former classmate. They shared life experiences only to discover they both still loved and were performing musical theatre, now as ‘aging ingenues.’ Thus, Committee of Two was born.
Joyce Stern Greenberg, who wrote and performs in Committee of Two, was a show biz kid and has worked over the years as a singing comedienne, actress, teacher, director, producer, writer, and host of a cable television series. From 1986-96, Joyce was producing artistic director of the senior performing troupes, Acting Up! and Acting Up Too! From 2009-12, she directed the intergenerational Spotlighters at the Wilmette Theatre in Wilmette, IL
