Who is This For?

When we approach a new project, one of the questions we need to be asking ourselves is who is this for? Who is the intended audience we want to hear, see, experience this story on stage? And in today’s world where the necessity of the art is being challenged, knowing who this is for and […]

Let’s Discuss “Women+ In Theatre”

In case you missed it, last week, five female identifying theatre artists created a closed Facebook group called Women in Theatre, now titled something different, but we’ll get to that. And yo, sh** got real, real quick.

Who You Want Your Audience To Be

I’ve been thinking a lot about “audience” recently. I went to three shows this weekend, two fringe and one mid-size, and saw a huge disparity in who was attending the shows. This wasn’t surprising.

Build Me Up: Architecture in the Theatre

Build Me Up: Architecture in the Theatre

I spent every summer from 2011-2015 working for an architecture, engineering, and interior design firm. In addition to padding my savings account, the job gave me a real appreciation for how much time, energy, coordination, compromise, and thoughtful design goes […]

Self Care in the Theater

This weekend I attended a POC healing night for artists and activists in Boston put together by a dear friend of mine, Lauren Miller, who works in Community Engagement and is an Administrative Manager at Company One Theater in Boston. This event was constructed in three parts: a session of reconstructive yoga, a group listen […]
