From the deep archives: Second Stage producers Carole Rothman and Robyn Goodman

March 10, 2012

Thirty years ago I was relatively new to New York City, an incredibly ambitious, intrepid, gung-ho freelance writer churning out feature stories and reviews about theater, movies, and music for the New York Times Arts & Leisure section, the Village Voice, and Rolling Stone, mainly. Here’s an interview I did with Carole Rothman and Robyn Goodman five years after they launched the Second Stage Theater, in a different location and with a different mission than the company holds down under Rothman’s leadership today. Goodman, of course, is now the Tony Award-winning Broadway producer of In the Heights and other shows (and despite the nervousness she evinced in this long-ago interview, an out and proud lesbian). Check it out and let me know what you think.
