Panelists will include writer Marc Acito (Allegiance, How I Paid for College) and director and actor Alan Muraoka (Pacific Overtures,"Sesame Street"), as well as a performance from The Prom star Isabelle McCalla (Aladdin) and the show's conductor Ted Arthur (Wicked, ce On This Island), alongside Masie, Leung and McGill. In the afternoon, the group will attend a performance of the Drama Desk Best Musical, The Prom and experience the storytelling of the show through the lens of the morning conversation.
