Gavin Creel (She Loves Me), Warren Carlyle (She Loves Me), Steven Pasquale (The Robber Bridegroom), and Jessica Vosk (Fiddler on the Roof) are among the panelists planned for "Reviving the Revival," a conversation about staging revivals moderated by Drama Desk member Robin Milling. The event will take place at noon on May 24 at Sardi's Restaurant.

Topics that will be addressed in the discussion include: Why bring the show back now? How do you make something from another decade relevant today? What elements make a good revival? What are the downsides and upsides of reviving a show? Which changes work and which ones don't? How do you work celebrity stars into the mix?

Lunch will be served beginning at noon.

Robin Milling is a writer and producer, and a host of the Milling About podcast, an entertainment news and interview program. She is also the New York correspondent for World Entertainment News Network.
