Jane Bishop Legacy Circle
The Jane Bishop Legacy Circle was created to honor the work and vision of True Colors Theatre Company’s Co-founder. It was Jane’s vision along with Kenny Leon to create a theatre that looks like the world and that encouraged people of different cultures to sit side by side and bring their unique perspective to the art on the stage.
With this in mind, in 2002, Jane Bishop and Kenny Leon began True Colors Theatre Company, Atlanta’s first truly diverse professional theater company. Jane’s contributions to both True Colors and Atlanta’s art scene are too many to count, but prior to her passing in 2012, she and her partner Sandra Deer determined that Jane would like to leave a financial gift of $25,000 to True Colors in her will establishing True Colors as Jane’s true legacy left to Atlanta.
Jane was more than a colleague; she was a very special presence on the planet. Her sharing and giving spirit will be with us forever.
