Tony Estrella

SALON: The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Artistic Director Tony Estrella

Tony Estrella, Artistic Director of the Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the composition of a theatrical season. A diverse season must have balance, reimagining the classics for contemporary audiences while highlighting new works which explore the social, political and cultural climate. Estrella will reveal the values underlying those decisions, including the institutional priorities, creative negotiations, and challenges to provide innovative theater that challenges and expands perceptions and understanding.

Sponsored by the Pearle W. and Marin M. Silverstein Foundation
