In Conversation with Robert O’Hara

In this episode of TA(L)KING DIRECTION, Associate Artistic Director Nilan speaks with Tony-nominated director and playwright, Robert O’Hara, who has been essential in bringing new perspectives and stories about Black bodies and queer lives to the stage. They talk about working outside of the box, what it’s like to be both writer and director of a show, working in the classical canon as Black director, and what the actual labor of creating a production is like.
