Podcast: Anne Garcia-Romero

In this episode, Halcyon Theatre artistic director Tony Adams talks with playwright and scholar Anne Garcia-Romero. She's a resident playwright at Chicago Dramatists, a professor at Notre Dame, and author of the fantastic book, The Fornes Frame: Contemporary Latina Playwrights and the Legacy of Maria Irene Fornes

She talks about balancing being an artist and a scholar, studying with María Irene Fornés, how teaching frees her up to focus on playwriting, how she ended up getting both an MFA and a PhD,  what she's learned over her career, and more.

The Fornes Frame can be picked up from The University of Arizona Press or on amazon, if not at your local bookstore. I highly recommend it.
