Hosted by M. Graham Smith, we are delighted to bring you the fourth episode of our podcast series – Masters of the Stage: Regional Originals with M. Graham Smith – a series of interviews with some of the most exciting Directors and Choreographers working in America’s regional theatres today.
This week Graham is with Mina Morita, Artistic Director of Crowded Fire Theater Company. Mina is an artist that others say ‘leads with love’, what does this mean? What characterizes each region in this country in terms of the narratives that are important and the particular sets of resources and expectations that come with San Francisco? And what brought the conversation to this moment: ‘If theater doesn’t figure out a way to be more essential to its community, it’s going to die’.
