Alec Baldwin Among Esteemed Faculty for Southampton Theatre Conference


You may have heard about Stony Brook University Libraries official partnership with the world renowned Southampton Writers Conference (if you haven’t read the article!). But what you might not be aware of is that the Southampton Theatre Conference happens right alongside the Writers Conference. The Hamptons have long been known as a realm for the arts. Steeped with a rich culture of writers, actors, and all forms of artists, Stony Brook University’s Southampton Campus will be hosting these events concurrently.

Perhaps the most notable of the conference’s esteemed faculty is Alec Baldwin, an actor of film, television, and theatre. Mr. Baldwin is something of a modern renaissance man who has evolved throughout his prestigious career even showing off a knack for comedy in NBC’s 30 Rock (2006-2013).


Baldwin acts in “All My Son’s” at Guild Hall in East Hampton.

Throughout his success, Mr. Baldwin has never lost track of his Long Island roots. He remains an active supporter and participant in the local theatre community, and even enjoyed a successful run starring in Arthur Miller’s ‘All My Sons’ directed by Stephen Hamilton at the Guild Hall in East Hampton.

Mr. Baldwin will be passing along his experience (over 25 years of professional acting) and expertise in tandem with Bethany Caputo during an Acting Master Class on July 11 and 12. Like the rest of the acclaimed faculty for both the Writers and Theatre Conference, Stony Brook University Libraries will be looking to feature the careers and works of these artists. The Library has purchased and transferred materials to the Southampton Branch, which will be on display for the duration of the conference, and the Southampton staff also plans to decorate the library with “author stations,” that highlight the awards and publications of all Faculty members.


Stony Brook University Libraries is prepping materials for display to help promote their partnership with the Southampton Writers Conference.
