Local Veteran Promotes San Diego Theatre Scene as National Leader in Diversity and Inclusion


Theatre Corner is a San Diego-based video interview series promoting more diverse interest and involvement in the theatrical arts. Founded by Michael Taylor, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps Infantry and the only Black man serving on the Board of Directors at The Old Globe. Theatre Corner originated as an effort to engage potential theatergoers in San Diego's underrepresented Black community by spotlighting Black celebrities performing in the local theater scene.

Theatre Corner has since expanded into a nationally recognized brand showcasing the talent and activism of famous and up-and-coming stars of stage and screen, including Scrubs actor Donald Faison, TV legend Hal Linden, and the New York Times profiled director and playwright, Patricia McGregor.

On Friday, April 21, Michael Taylor will interview Get Out and Django Unchained actor Marcus Henderson, and multi-award winning playwright and Shameless writer, Dominique Morisseau.

As a forward-thinking platform for advancing diversity and inclusion at every level of the art form, Theatre Corner is changing the way we talk about, think about, and experience the power of live theater in San Diego and beyond.
