The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the various struggles of actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes veteran actor and teacher Karl Kenzler November 4.
Created by actress Leah Walsh, the podcast documents the lives of artists navigating the waters between art and commerce. Each week, Playbill.com highlights Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living, and maintaining inspiration.
This week, Kenzler shares his experiences with the dark side, raising kids as an artist, creating one's own work, keeping inspired during a long run of a play, and passing on the legacy of great teachers. Kenzler’s Broadway credits include Fiddler On The Roof, You Can't Take It With You, Mary Poppins, Twelve Angry Men, The Caretaker, Dinner at Eight, and The Heiress.
