The multi-talented Dionne McClain-Freeney is a musical theatre septuple threat – pianist, composer, lyricist, choral and musical director, arranger, singer and teaching artist. Join Meghan & Holly as they sit down with Dionne to discuss her many roles in the theater world, musical theater as a medium rather than a genre, the importance of “working it out” in a collaboration, genre-fluidity, love song lyrics that make her swoon, uplifting the next generation of musical theater creators, redefining success in theater, faith and spirituality as a queer person, the beauty in the mundane lives of queers, and our shared enduring love of Anybodys. Meghan and Holly also discuss the LAST GASP WFH, written and performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver of Split Britches and presented by La Mama and shout out Rock Steady farm.
