Here’s the audio recording from our fascinating panel discussion held at the new Manny Cantor Center on Monday. Our guests included Jay Wegman – artistic director of Abrons Arts Center, Ellie Covan – founder and artistic director of Dixon Place, John Collins – founder and artistic director of the theatrical company, Elevator Repair Service and Nicky Paraiso – director of programming at The Club at La MaMa.
We checked in with these esteemed programmers, producers and artists, and examined the current climate for the performing arts downtown. We discussed sustainability, how audiences and venues have evolved over the years, and explored the idea of building and growing audiences in the future, as the neighborhoods downtown continue to transform.
