Crime and stage management with The Ballad of Peachtree Rose

We don’t often get to hear from the perspective of stage managers when talking about theatre, so this week I spoke with Millie Winzinowich, the apprentice stage manager for Workshop West’s new show, The Ballad of Peachtree Rose. We talk about what stage management even is and why every show needs a stage manager, theatre unions, boxes, spike tape, organized crime and Edmonton’s seedy underbelly, and more.
