Tokens & Change

By Gregory Omar Osborne
“Tokens & Change,” hosted by Gregory Omar Osborne, aims to address diversity and inclusion in theater: where we’re excelling and lacking and how we can improve our community. So he starts a conversation with people who can change aesthetics; casting directors, agents/managers, creatives. Guests from all stages of the biz, novice to professional, will share their stories. So join the conversation every Friday! Questions or comments? Send a message via Anchor or @Goo_Inc on facebook or Instagram.
