Apr 29, 2021 Season 1 Episode 24
Meropi Peponides | Rachel Lin

In this episode Rachel speaks with one of the directors of Soho Rep and a co-founder of Radical Evolution: Meropi Peponides. The two met over a decade ago while Meropi was still an MFA student at Columbia. As the theater industry continues to have conversations about change, and what that might look like, we were excited to 1.  gain a better understanding of what leadership looks at one of downtown's bedrock institutions. 2. Learn more about what how those decisions were made, and where they might be going.

They chat about:

  • Dramaturgy!
  • the organization of theatrical organizations
  • what makes a Soho Rep artist
  • the piece of advice Meropi would give in a development process
