A few days ago, I received a request from Sharon Eberson of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. She wanted to do one last push to promote the final episode of Broadway or Bust. We had a candid conversation which ultimately led to this feature on the Community Voices Blog.
After reading the feature, I appreciated Sharon's understanding of my role at the NHSMTA. I was concerned that I would be edited for entertainment value and only be seen or portrayed as the "task master". PBS has done a really good job with showing the range of emotions and responsibilities I deliver. I knew Sharon "got it" when I read this statement:
"She acts as mother, psychologist, teacher and, when necessary, task master to get the most out of the participants so they can be seen in the best light possible."
Here's the feature...enjoy!
