Where's Richard!?!

Women Writers' Night

October 1994: Writer Joanne DelCarpine knocks out the final details of what is to become the most successful of Penny Lane's many trademark shows: Where's Richard!?!, Women Writers' Night. Unlike most writer's shows of its time, Where's Richard!?! encompassed all facets of the craft, not limiting itself merely to singer/songwriters or poets as so many did then and still do, but paved a path still not equaled in presenting the most diverse range of expression imaginable, setting a new standard not only in writers' showcases but in variety shows in general. Years later, Where's Richard!?! still sets that standard. The following archive is the story of that journey and of its hosts: Joanne DelCarpine, Libby Kirkpatrick, Marca Cassidy, Rebecca Beacher and Jess Gonacha.
