Oskar Eustis on TED

I had the pleasure of serving on the board and working on the strategy of Trinity Rep in Providence when Oskar Eustis was the artistic director. He went on to New York’s Public Theater, where he’s won several Tony Awards, most recently for Hamilton.

I’ve been highly critical of TED for its pretension, but this past week I saw their video of Oskar presenting for about 13 minutes on the role of the theater in society, “Why theater is essential to democracy,” and it was mesmerizing. I urge you to spend the time: https://www.ted.com/talks/oskar_eustis_why_theater_is_essential_to_democracy
