The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the stories of working actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes playwright Adam Szymkowicz.
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.
In this week’s episode, Szymkowicz (Pretty Theft, Hearts Like Fists, among many others) shares his experiences with the dark side, persistence, becoming a parent, advising young writers, and his interview series, which has just come to an end after featuring 1,000 playwrights. Check out his blog and read the interviews here.
