  • Entertaining Erudition

    I’ve enjoyed every one of the pods cast so far, learned a lot, and found myself reflecting afterwards on the issues raised. Host Schatz, genial and charismatic, knows and loves theatre and gets the best out of his guests. He’ll enhance your appreciation of plays you’ve seen and inspire you to see ones you otherwise might not. A dramatic departure from the ordinary.
