What kind of theater excites you? I’m a musical theatre junkie!The Boston Theatre Conference is focusing on the lively, lush and local aspects of our theatre community. What do you think? I love the locavore focus! We have great theatre “to consume” through out the year- with our anchor regional theatres, our flourishing mid-size theatres and our vibrant fringe companies. We can “taste and sample” home grown theatre all year and keep our mental “palates” engaged and fresh.
