It's the art of theatre from the playwright's perspective
I enjoy this podcast immensely, especially the opening prologues that are more personal. Also, the choice of guests is spot on. I can discover fascinating new writers, and find out more about the ones I already know. I listened to Paula Vogel's interview twice because it was so very interesting. And tonight I discovered Roger Q Mason, who sounds like a freaking force of nature. We can be proud of such great theatre artists, young and seasoned. Thanks for bringing them to our attention. Keep up the great work with this wonderful show.
