Carol Dunne is the embodiment of a leader - revitalizing two moribund theaters into central focal points of their respective communities, championing women in theatre leadership, and showing lots of people what can be done when you really want it.
I can’t act, and I can’t sing, but Carol Dunne sure can. She can also resurrect failing regional theatre troupes, manage two organizations at the same time, and recruit and mentor leaders who happen to be women in the artistic world. I learned a lot from talking to Carol, who is honest, sharp, and engaging. Listen as we talk about her life, how she got into music and theatre in the first place, how she’s dealt with enormous challenges and some failures, and what it means to be a leader in a creative industry.
