KPOP co-conceiver and librettist Jason Kim, director Teddy Bergman of Woodshed Collective, and Ars NOVA Artistic Director Jason Eagan discuss collaborating on this unique production currently at A.R.T./New York Theatres, and how it explores celebrity, identity, and the worldwide phenomenon of K-pop music. Theater critic Elisabeth Vincentelli is guest co-host, joining series host and executive producer Susan Haskins-Doloff.

Next, the episode continues the previous week's conversation previewing the Fall 2017 theater season with Michael Musto, Patrick Pacheco, Vincentelli, and guest co-host Jesse Green.
