My guest on this episode is the possibility driven theatre-maker Priya Mahendra.
With the perfect balance of East and West, Priya’s parents moved to America from India and while she honours that heritage she’s also just a girl from Jersey.
Her love of rap, classic rock and pop music led her to studying Entertainment Business. She worked in the music department of the major talent agency ICM Partners before leaving to follow her heart into the world of acting and theatre.
Since then Priya has been on a very intentional path to build the career she wants and develop a platform where she can help everyone feel like they can belong in the theatre, whether they are making the work or experiencing it.
With Kevin Schuering and a team of collaborators, Priya filmed a sequence of numbers from the musical "The Last 5 Years" to plant the seeds of possibility and open people’s eyes (including mine) to broadening the scope of who can tell the stories of the pieces we already know and love.
Just like her blog Sunday Night Sonder, this episode with Priya gives you a chance to get to know the person behind the work. Learn about what drives her, what she believes in and what she hopes to achieve.
