Twins Talk Theatre

Twins Cynthia Hennon Marino and Stacy Hennon Stone host a weekly podcast talking to the people behind the curtains. Take a trip back stage to learn what it takes to put on a production: design process, music study and execution, paperwork, meetings, management, unions, and all the excitement backstage that the audience doesn’t get to see. Enjoy the show!

069 - Elynmarie Kazle

January 25th, 2019

This week we spoke with Elynmarie Kazle on how she navigated being the first female #stagemanager at San Diego Opera in the 1980s and why she chose to always wear a skirt suit, heels and hose. We also delve into what the Stage Managers' Association of the United States is (in which she is the Chair), how it got started, how it has evolved over the past years, and all of the wonderful resources they offer (including a wonderful mentor section, a document page, the Symposium and starting this month, a new Lecture Series).
