A Tale of Two Theaters: Papermill Playhouse and the Village Theatre
Friday 11/18 2022 at 5:00 eastern time
In the room: Jen Bender, associate artistic director of Papermill Playhouse; and Adam Immerwahr, artistic director of the Village Theatre in Issaquah and Everett Washington. Jen and Adam will talk about the effect of shutdown on their respective theater companies, both notable for their development of new works for the musical theater. Did the pandemic shift their mission in any way? How did they maintain their audience base without live performance? Did they venture into virtual? Do they still develop new shows? And what are their plans for programming going forward?
