Anne Bogart: Theatre Director and Author | Episode 051

Anne Bogart: Theatre Director and Author | Episode 051

Whenever I get the opportunity to chat with Anne Bogart, I feel like my mind explodes as I develop some new insights into the vast world of theatre. This is why she was an amazing guest to have for our season 3 opener. Anne and I discuss her latest book The Art of Resonance and what inspired her to create this book after writing so many others. Anne shares her definition of resonance, we talk ethos, pathos, and logos, and we also talk about some of the most effective ways to connect with an audience.
