The Backstage Creative focuses on the people who work behind the scenes of theater. Each week is a conversation with either a stage manager, designer, musician, music director, choreographer, sound engineer, or technical director. We get into the nitty-gritty of what it takes to get a live production on stage and shine a light on the often overlooked and under appreciated creatives who create the magic of live theater.
