The nation’s capital has long had one of the most vibrant regional theater scenes in the country. But are those theaters — and others like them across the U.S. — failing to reach the audiences they were created to serve? That’s the question that Mike Daisey asks in his one-man show, which arrives today in Washington after an Off-Broadway run. Join Kojo as we talk about what theater owes the public — and what audiences owe the theater community.
- Mike Daisey Creator and performer, "How Theater Failed America"
- Linda Levy Grossman President and CEO, Helen Hayes Awards
