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.
