In our first podcast on TheaterJones, and the first in a series of director audio interviews, Thomas Riccio talks to WaterTower Theatre's Terry Martin.
Riccio is a professor at the University of Texas at Dallas, a playwright, director, world traveler and theater-maker. This spring, he wrote a series of essays for us about his experience with making theater in Ethiopia in 2009. The first of those is here.
Martin is artistic director of Addison's WaterTower Theatre, which is currently staging a breathtaking revival of Thornton Wilder's Our Town. Martin not only directs it, but plays the Stage Manager. Read our review here.
In the interview, Martin talks about his theater, and the challenges of selecting a season. And he even has some interesting thoughts about the local press and critics.
