I was asked by the wonderful Jacqueline E. Lawton to participate in the latest TCG blog salon, “Artistic Leadership: How Do We Change the Game?” She sent me a series of questions wickedly difficult to answer:
What was the most game-changing production you’ve seen or created, and why?
Who was the most game-changing theatre leader/artist you’ve met, and what do you carry forward from their example?
What is the most significant opportunity—or challenge—facing the theatre field, and how can we address it together?
My answers reference the late Edgardo de la Cruz, African American Shakespeare Company, Lauren Gunderson, Howard Sherman, Annoyance Theatre, and Lawton herself, along with issues of representation, money, and empathy.

Money and empathy. Cuts to both the quick and chase. Top notch!
