Talkin' Transition

On September 24th, True Colors announced that I would be taking over as Artistic Director at the beginning of the 2019-20 season. It is an honor to take the baton and to carry on in the tradition of Jane Bishop and Kenny Leon who started the company in 2002. Below, I’ve compiled most of the posts, live interviews, and written chats I’ve done around the transition!
