The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the stories of working actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes Dear Evan Hansen and Fun Home choreographer Danny Mefford May 12.

In this week’s episode Mefford shares when he started identifying as a choreographer instead of a performer, the nature of collaboration, his artistic mentors, and challenging himself.

Created by actor Leah Walsh, the podcast documents the lives of artists navigating the waters between art and commerce. Each week, Playbill highlights Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living, and maintaining inspiration.
