To close out Season 1, the tenth episode of Why We Theater focuses on the state of theatre right now. Rather than a panel, Ruthie talks directly to you. Why We Theater’s mission is to use the theatre as inspiration to create change, and right now, the theatre industry and the pipeline to it (a.k.a. arts education) needs change. What can you do to save Broadway and hundreds of theatres around the country right now? What can you do to ensure artists can afford stay artists? Why is it necessary for every person to take classes in the arts? (Yes, there is research that says this is vital for everyone.) Where can you study the arts right now? It’s all here in this wrap-up of Season 1.
