This week’s guest is Nia Blizzard. Nia is a Production Stage Manager and self-describes as a “Black theater worker whose passions include (but are not limited to) binge watching reality TV shows, spending time with their friends, and advocating for the rights of all Americans. When they are not stage managing, you can find them at the nearest hiking trail or trying to make the world a better place through advocacy and volunteering. Their most recent credits include “Foul Shots by Christin Eve Cato at INTAR Theater Company,” “Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth” with the Broadway League and Over Easy by Abaigeal O’Donnell with SheNYC Arts.
Here’s our conversation from July 20th, 2020. Recorded for my live YouTube Series: The SHO Must Go On…line!

Nia and I went to Free Shakespeare in the Park’s Merry Wives last night (actually it’s tonight because I’m recording on Tuesday, but shhhh don’t ruin the illusion)… and we met up after their fabulous work being the Production Assistant for The Broadway League at Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth, which you can see photos and videos of on bwaySHO.com!

Broadway SHOs are announcing their new opening dates. While we’re excited to see everyone get back to work, we must stay vigilant in our calls to make theatre a safe space for everyone involved. We need reports on how companies will be enacting anti-racist, anti-transphobia, anti-abelism and anti-abuse work. We can’t go back, we must move forward.
Get your vaccine, wear a mask, be safe and let’s take care of ourselves.
We’ll see you at the SHO
