Theatre audiences aren't getting any younger, so it's time to start showing young people that theatre is, always has been, and always will be, a vital, gritty, modern, underdog art form, with the power to inspire and entertain us all. Please join me on each episode as I see a show with a friend, and then learn all about who they are, what they want their theatre to be, and what they don't want their theatre to be. It's time to listen. This is Showgoers.
