Extremely helpful podcast
I have been an acting teacher for 30 years. For the past 14 years I have been running my own school called Actors Playground in Freehold NJ. I also run a touring social issue theater company out of the school called Playground Theatre Project in which we use a peer to peer philosophy for all grade levels. A friend of mine from Mason Gross, Mike Calderone was recently on the podcast and I’ve been listening ever since. I am always trying to pick up new exercises, new approaches, and fresh opinions. This podcast has provided all of that and much more. It’s very interesting to listen to fellow theater professionals around the country sharing their thoughts on their experiences and ambitions. What an amazing resource this is! I have added much to my curriculum from listening to this podcast. Bravo to all involved. The show has definitely made a difference in my classroom. Keep up the good work guys!
Brief but Benign
No one is going to accuse TFP of being groundbreaking, but it has utility for beginning play writes. Although one has to suffer through the—latently dislikable—host and her frequent self-important rants, overall it's worth a listen if you've got twenty minutes and the topic catches your eye.
I love Theatrefolk! As a high school drama teacher, actor , and write, the resources gain by this podcast are enormous. Thank you Lindsay & Theatrefolk.
