My job is to tap into the community and say, ‘This is what people want to see.’ It’s a little harder with new plays because it’s an untested resource. So, we’re creating something that I feel is going to speak to the Bloomington audience and the surrounding areas, and bring people in, sell tickets, but also be artistically valuable.
