We kick off 2020, and a new decade with an interview with Artistic Director of Montana Repertory Theatre, Michael Legg. Montana Rep is the only full season, equity theater in the state of Montana (population: 1 million).

Rachel & Michael talk about his journey to Artistic Director, after a brief stint as a talent agent in New York, and 11 years as the director of the professional training program at Actor's Theatre of Louisville in Kentucky. As someone who selected a small cohort of young actors for a prestigious training program, Rachel picks his brain about what he responded to when auditioning young artists. Michael shares what excites him most about working on new plays, and what's important to him about growing a regional theater in a rural community.
