The Alliance Theatre has long been known for bringing Broadway stars to Atlanta, typically in the form of a new musical like Tuck Everlasting or The Prom. The team is back at it again, but this time in a totally new way.

Every week, the Tony Award-winning theatre will publish a free video Q&A with a new theatre professional sharing about their experiences in the industry. Entitled, “The Artist’s Approach,” there are currently seven episodes available, with more episodes promised every Tuesday.

The lineup of stars includes a variety of people from actors to writers, including familiar Broadway and Atlanta names like Sierra Boggess, Michael Arden, Casey Nicholaw, and Kenny Leon.

About “The Artist’s Approach”

This free weekly series features prerecorded conversations with some of today’s most exciting actors, directors, and writers for stage and screen discussing their approach to their craft and tips of the trade. Each episode includes a conversation between that week’s guest and a small participatory audience made up of Atlanta-based professional artists, moderated by Alliance Artistic Director Susan V. Booth, Associate Producer Amanda Watkins, and BOLD Artistic Director Fellow Tinashe Kajese-Bolden.
