In Rooms with Women/Artists I Admire: One - Dessa

There’s a moment after meeting an artist I admire when I mentally slap myself. Palm smacking my imagined forehead, I fixate: I said THAT? Why?  Why did I use those words? Did I communicate anything? What was I thinking?

This is my rebellion

This is my rebellion

Theatre is changing.  New scripts include ranges of characters, diversifying who is portrayed in plays, in musicals.  As a result, more and more people are seeing themselves represented on stage.  THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL.  I admire the grace and compassion with which theatre artists hold this responsibility.
