Ep. 113: A Conversation with Ken Cerniglia

On this podcast episode, our first-ever podcast crossover, Lauren is talking about an element of theater, which she believes is integral to the production process, dramaturgy. It turns out there is a direct parallel between dramaturgy, the quality of show being delivered, and even how a show connects with audiences, which is where Lauren’s conversation with Ken Cerniglia (Hadestown) begins.

You can listen to the second part of Lauren’s conversation with Ken on the Broadway Underground podcast (available wherever you get your podcasts) or click the link below.
