The Arts: Our Civic Purpose

Today in the Cheap Seats we welcome the Artistic Director of The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, California, Mr. Barry Edelstein!  Mr. Edelstein is one of the foremost American experts on Shakespeare, and has directed over half of the Bard’s plays.  During the COVID pandemic, Mr. Edelstein has overseen online programming that included world premieres, as well as a full lineup of free programs.

Mr. Edelstein is insightful, open, and honest during our discussion about his fears, his hopes, and the understanding that the arts are truly our civic purpose.
