Offscript is an occasional podcast produced by American Theatre editors.
This month, we’re offering an audio version of a live event we held on Jan. 8 to celebrate our January issue on directing training. We assembled a panel of all-star directors: Anne Kauffman (Marvin’s Room), Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), Anne Bogart (SITI Company), and Liesl Tommy (Eclipsed). In front of a live audience at Playwrights Downtown‘s Robert Moss Theater in New York City, these experienced helmers discussed how why and how they became directors, how to build a career as a director, and why they love (or hate) coffee meetings. AT staff writer Allison Considine moderated. Our producer is Kirby Pate.
