Dear Multi-Hyphenate

ABOUT

Dear Multi-hyphenate, hosted by Michael Kushner, explores the full potential of an artist in show business. Are you unsure if you could do anything other than what your BFA allows you to do? Are you sitting on a project and you have no idea how to get started? What if others have cornered you into thinking that you are just an actor, or just a director, or just a producer? Let go of the rules and take agency of your full potential! Listen to me and my guests, the leaders of the multi-hyphenation station, as we dissect the mentality and possibilities about doing it all.
