Artistic Director Adam Immerwahr teams up with Katherine MacHolmes and Rachel Grossman for this once-in-a-lifetime series of candid and probing conversations about theater, race, Jewish identity and justice. The world is changing quickly, as industries throughout the country try to rise to meet the moment of social change around diversity, inclusion, and equity. MacHolmes and Grossman, industry-renowned experts, will introduce us to current thinking on anti-racism and anti-oppression, and then challenge Immerwahr in what it means to run a theater (and particularly a Jewish theater) in this moment.
These frank and vulnerable conversations will wrestle with both the particular and the universal in the ultimate insider’s access to how an institution strives to serve its mission. We’ll unpack “whiteness,” who gets to tell the story, allyship, and more in these dialogues that will leave you with fascinating ideas to grapple with (and discuss) for months. And don’t worry, there’ll be time for lots of your questions and thoughts every week!
