FINAL FIVE: Mike Isaacson

Welcome to another FINAL FIVE Bonus Episode! These are the five questions I'll be asking each guest all season long, as they give concise and and focused insights not covered in our main conversation. The answers given are surprising and revealing, showing another side to Jenny Stafford...

  1. If you could have any other job outside of the arts what would it be?
  2. What is a bucket list role or show you still hope to do one day?
  3. Who do you look up to? A mentor or someone who inspires you.
  4. Name a lesson or trait that took you awhile to learn or one that you are still learning to this day?
  5. What’s the best advice you’ve received?

Click to learn more about other Artistic Directors who Mike mentioned in his answer to number 3 - Mark Hoebee at Papermill and Dan Knechtges at TUTS.


The time and expense needed to bring these guests and conversations to you each week is both sometimes challenging but always rewarding. Please consider buying me a coffee to support this work that goes into each episode.
