The Arts Partly from your Sofa, part 62 and three-quarters

What is it like being a black actor in the Columbia theatre scene? On this week's show actors, Enola White and Barret Brooks, generously chat with me about their experiences. Plus we delve into some summer reading with Skylark Bookshop's Alex George, and I chat to Dr. Joy Powell and writer/composer/actor Murphy Ward about a new musical, 'All the Spaces', penned by Murphy Ward, Kylee Compton and Shawn Campanini, which is being workshopped online before opening at the University of Missouri this September. And here are some links to things discussed on today's show: Dear White American Theatre letter here: https://www.weseeyouwat.com/ ; #PublishingPaidMe https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Xsx6rKJtafa8f_prlYYD3zRxaXYVDaPXbasvt_iA2vA/edit#gid=1798364047 ; 'All the Spaces' presented by the MU Theatre department here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLxt-06nj2o
