1. How did this journey with BroadwayEvolved begin? How did you come up with and grow the idea?
It’s actually been eight years since the concept formulated in my mind. Even the concept of BroadwayEvolved has evolved as I’ve grown personally and professionally and I’m so happy I waited until now to implement it. All the pieces have finally lined up, and as I reflect upon the success of the program so far, I know it’s because of the combination of the participant’s hunger for authentic growth, not just growth from a technical side, combined with a faculty and mission ready to directly reflect that.
