Arts Behind the Scenes: In Conversation with Randolyn Zinn
Join us on a journey behind the scenes as we gain insight into the world of creativity and hear the artist talk about the inspiration and process of her work. Elizabeth Coleman, the former president of Bennington College, will facilitate the conversation.
Randolyn will discuss what theater asks of and gives to audiences (and the people who create it), what it’s like to work on Broadway and off-off Broadway, how Randolyn taught Harvey Keitel to dance, LRT’s origin story, her new play that LRT is presenting this summer, and wherever else their conversation might lead.
