Creating a New Kind of Theatre During the Pandemic with Artistic Stamp | Episode 162

Broadway is still shuttered, and theaters across the country are trying to figure out how to stay afloat during an age of social distancing. Shelley Butler and West Hyler are both acclaimed international theatre directors who have worked everywhere from Broadway to Denver to Bulgaria. Together they came up with a concept for a new socially-distanced type of theatre – an interactive way of telling stories that does not involve a screen. Artistic Stamp is currently in its first season, where audience members get to interact directly with characters through a series of letters that come through the mail. It is a unique and utterly original way to support theatre artists and the craft of storytelling. Join us as we meet this talented and innovative couple to discuss the concept, execution, and what the future may hold for theatrical stories.
