Director’s Notes: The Smartest Girl in the World

Theatre has the great power to elevate these stories to the stage – to illuminate and stir audiences to question, wonder, empathize, and connect to lives they might not normally identify with. Bringing a person or group’s story to the stage, or the screen, or even a textbook, validates their voice, existence, and the issues and challenges unique to them. That’s important, […]
