Offscript: Jane Chu, the NEA, and the Kilroys

This week’s guest is chairman of the NEA Jane Chu, who discusses arts funding and ‘South Pacific.’ Plus, highlights from the TCG National Conference in Cleveland and a discussion of the new Kilroy’s list.

Every other week, the editors of American Theatre curate a free-ranging discussion about the lively arts in our Offscript podcast.

This week we have a very important guest: Jane Chu, the chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. Managing editor Suzy Evans sat down with chairman Chu during the 2015 TCG National Conference in Cleveland, and they talked about arts funding and that time Chu played Bloody Mary in a high school production of South Pacific.

In other conference news, editors Suzy, Rob Weinert-Kendt and Diep Tran return from Cleveland and discuss the highlights from the conference. We also go through the new Kilroys list of underproduced work by female playwrights.
