Kojo interviews WHUR's former general manager on how his technical experience informed his leadership, and how he turned one station into a network of six.
Struggling playwrights know that bringing a work from the written page to the stage can be a tour-de-force. Many promising dramas never see the light of day because of challenges ranging from theater politics to financing and production costs. But a growing movement in D.C. aims to bring locally written and produced plays to the stage using a non-traditional “collective theater” model. In our region, three plays by a collective called “The Welders” are already reaping dividends for audiences and dramaturges alike. Kojo learns what this model is all about from a founder of D.C.’s collective theater movement, and he finds out how it’s changing regional theater making.
