In Conversation with Steve H. Broadnax III

The return of Broadway has come with some change and opportunity. Black storytellers are finally getting the opportunity to share their stories, providing audiences the opportunity to see the complexities of Black thoughts, life, and performance through a myriad of narratives. In this episode of TA(L)KING DIRECTION, Associate Artistic Director Nilan sits down with director Steve H. Broadnax III, who made his Broadway directorial debut with Thoughts of a Colored Man by Keenan Scott II. They discuss what it’s been like to be a first-time director on Broadway, what it’s like to bring world premiere productions to life, and how Steve’s role in education informs what he does on stage.
