Growing and Running a Not-for-Profit Theater Company: Metropolitan and Mint
Friday 7/29, 2022 at 5:00 eastern time
In the room: Jonathan Bank, artistic director of the Mint Theater Company, and Alex Roe, producing artistic director of Metropolitan Playhouse. Our guests will talk about nearly 30 years of exploring the history of American theater and uncovering lost works, and how each company approached a similar mission. Has their mission, their infrastructure and their audience evolved over the years? How did they grow and maintain their companies? To what do they attribute their longevity? How did they adapt to the restraints of shutdown, what lessons were learned and what are their plans going forward? The path hasn't always been an easy one. We'll look at both the successes and the struggles.
