In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating some iconic women from across the cultural landscape who are making a difference in the arts and the world. The award-winning director Julie Taymor caught the theater bug when she was young, and she went on to become the first woman to win a Tony Award for directing a musical. Her stunning work includes the “The Lion King,” as well as the Off-Broadway production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Theater for a New Audience.

Watch the video to learn more about Taymor’s success and influence, and get inspired to check out some great female-led shows on TodayTix.com.
