Jose Solís, Alicia Ramírez and Juan Michael Porter II on their careers and the future of the industry


Jose Solís, Alicia Ramírez and Juan Michael Porter II have a lot in common. All three are passionate about the performing arts and have written theatre articles and reviews for prestigious publications, including The New York Times, American Theatre, The Washington Post and TDF Stages. They're also accustomed to often being some of the few non-white audience members at shows—but that's something they're actively working to change. Join TDF's Tyler Riley as he moderates a conversation with these three cultural critics and activists about their careers, their hopes for the industry as it reopens and their work to diversify theatre on the other side of the footlights. Tune in on Wednesday, July 7 at 3 p.m. ET on TDF's Facebook page for this urgent, entertaining and insightful discussion.
