A podcast series where we reminisce about shows past with the artists that helped bring them to life.

"The real hopeful thing about theater and the arts, in general, is you take these painful experiences and you shape them, give them form -- and people can experience them together. You come out of an experience like this not devastated, not demolished by it, but hopefully healed or having experienced a catharsis."
