Show Notes Chapter Markers

Jessie Austrian and Noah Brody are two of Fiasco Theater's co-founding members and co-artistic directors. In addition to running a company celebrated for their productions of Shakespeare & Sondheim - they're both actors, teachers, and directors. Their production of Merrily We Roll Along co-produced with Roundabout Theatre Company has been extended until April 14 at the Laura Pels Theater.

They joined forces after graduate school at Brown/Trinity Rep MFA program, and have been making theater together ever since. We talk about their post grad school, pre Fiasco years, the broken model for acting classes and training in New York, their advice to their younger selves, and their hopes for American Theater.
