Moderated by Natasha Sinha (Signature Theatre), this discussion will center an array of exciting playwrights, directors, designers, actors and producers on Broadway, off-Broadway, and on national tours, such as Zi Alikhan (Hamilton), Jaclyn Backhaus (India Pale Ale), Angel Desai (Company), Devanand Janki (Zanna, Don't!), and Neil Patel (Time & The Conways). Instead of focusing on diversity slots, the white gaze, and stale exoticism, we'll talk about the specific experiences, challenges, and desired future actions of the brilliant theatre folks on our panel.
