8:01 CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS BEYOND BACKSTAGE

Join three mid career live event professionals for the critical conversations about theatre, dance, concerts, corporate events and everything in between.




We are putting the conversations you might have across the street from from the stage door after a load out (or on zoom in 2020) into a podcast. The group responds to topics from the industry.

The opinions in this podcast are of the speakers and do not reflect the opinions of any of our employers past, present, or future.
