Working in the Theatre: Creating the Show

Creating your own show that showcases the work of others is inspiring. And in a year where options are limited, Mykal Kilgore and Vasthy Mompoint created their own opportunities to make space for others to flourish.

Broadway veteran Vasthy Mompoint’s “Vasthy’s Friends” is a platform dedicated to providing interactive children’s theatrical entertainment while featuring inclusive performances and topics.

Mykal Kilgore’s “Singer’s Comprehension” explores the singer’s journey through interviews with Mykal as his friends and colleagues offer us a glimpse into navigating their career, developing their technique, and understanding this business.

The shared joy and unrelenting creativity of these two artists gives us all hope and motivation to put power to pen and screen.
