The debut episode of Echo Offstage! Caridad Svich (OBIE Lifetime Achievement Award) goes offstage with our host, Catherine Whiteman, to discuss the potential of digital theatre, her upcoming film, and the secret behind her endless energy (it’s lots of clementines).
Welcome to Echo Offstage: Theatre Women Speak! Echo Theatre Dallas has been amplifying women’s voices onstage since 1998. Now, we invite you offstage—behind the curtain—for an intimate conversation with theatre’s most influential and innovative women.
