TheatreTalkTheatre Talk Interview Series

ANPF Theatre Talk is a series of conversations between prominent local actors and theatre professionals and Host John Rose. Inspired by James Lipton’s television series Inside the Actors Studio, it focuses on the ways their lives merge with their process, skill, and inspiration to create art. The series gives audiences a unique glimpse into the art, craft, and nature of theatre and provides a better understanding of these dynamic, hardworking artists.
