The Dramatists Guild Foundation has named Andrew Rincón, BA Theatre ‘13, as one of the 2019–2020 Dramatists Guild Foundation Fellows.

As a Fellow, Andrew Rincón will spend the year developing a full-length show with the support of the program’s chairs, culminating in an Off-Broadway presentation of the show. As part of the program, Andrew will receive financial support, access to guest artists, and a chance to collaborate with one of DGF’s partners to continue to develop his original work. Former Fellows include Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Frozen), Michael R. Jackson (A Strange Loop), Antoinette Nwandu (Pass Over), Lauren Yee (King of the Yees), Max Vernon (K-Pop), and Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen).
