The Bechdel Test is used to test the representation of women in fiction.

The test has three requirements: 1. the work must have at least two women in it, 2. who talk to each other, 3. about something besides a man.

Using that as our inspiration, ​Bechdel Test: An Evening of Women in Theatre ​will showcase songs that are written and/or composed by women for a Broadway musical. The concert will celebrate the amazing women that have managed to break through and have their artistic voices heard; and will highlight songs that show that women can be strong, funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, daring – and have something to sing about besides men.

Of the 248 Best Musical Tony award nominees only six have been written entirely by women, 84 musicals involved at least one female bookwriter/composer/lyricist, and the remaining 158 were written entirely by men...
