A Tale of Two More Theaters: Goodspeed and La Mirada
Friday 12/16 2022 at 5:00 eastern time
Friday 12/16 - In the room: Donna Lynn Hilton, artistic director of Goodspeed Musical Theatre in East Haddam, CT; and BT McNicholl, producing artistic director of La Mirada Performing Arts Center in La Mirada, CA. As we re-enter the world of live performance, we'll continue to check in with theater companies around the country. Donna Lynn and BT will tell us about the history of their companies as well as their responses to shutdown and their challenges and successes as they welcome back their audiences. Did the pandemic shift their mission in any way? How did they maintain their audience base without live performance? Did they venture into virtual? And what are their plans for programming going forward?
