Ep 9 - Melted into air on the fringe, the David Miller interview

 

After nearly twenty years on the fringe, Boston’s Zeitgeist Stage Company is shutting its doors with its production of Jacques Lamarre’s Trigger Warning at the Boston Center for the Arts, April 12 through May 4. 

Arts Fuse editor Bill Marx, along with Lucas Spiro and Matt  Hanson, spend the hour talking with David Miller, the founding artistic  director of the company. We discuss the challenging theater the small  company was known for, current barriers of entry in the theater world,  and the money behind it all. Mainstream theater, like so much else in  our culture, is dominated by a small group of wealthy people who exert  considerable power and influence over what is staged, and who gets to do  it. Is there a future for challenging non-corporate theater (i.e. the  fringe), and what does that future look like?
