Interview: Jessica Hutchinson, Eleanor Hyde, Michelle Lilly, Nick Keenan – Part 1

On this week’s podcast, we air Part 1 of a two-part series focusing on the recently disbanded company, New Leaf Theatre. This week in Part 1, Artistic Director Jessica Hutchinson, Managing Director Eleanor Hyde, resident scenic designer Michelle Lilly, and resident sound designer Nick Keenan join Anne Nicholson Weber to talk about New Leaf’s history, culture and successes. Next week, we will conclude the conversation with Part 2, the story of the ensemble’s decision to disband the company at the end of the run of their most recent show, a critcially-acclaimed production of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia.
