These are the preview videos about the creation process for the original 2008 production. While this video still provides insight into the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the production, it does not reveal my evolving understanding of the work since that time. Each time this work is revived my understanding of it grows and that can only be experienced by seeing the current production with its mix of returning and new artists. The revived production of The Theater of Needless Talents will tour nationally and in Seattle Oct. 25-28, 2012.
