For over forty years, Jim Morgan has been one of the most recognizable names in the New York theatre. For twenty years, Jim has served as the the artistic director of the acclaimed Off-Broadway theater company, The York Theatre. And, for twenty years before that, he was one of their most trusted set designers. Jim’s eye for taste and talent has led to some of Off-Broadway’s most recent hits including The Musical of Musicals: The Musical, Cagney, Desperate Measures, Souvenir, and Enter Laughing, as well as cultivating the Musicals in Mufti series which gave audiences second looks at The Grass Harp, Grind, The Grand Tour, Regina, and 100 more.

 

Jim pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how a job interview led to a thirty plus years of employment, what it was like doing Sweeney Todd on a basketball court, and why an incognito Sondheim always gets recognized!

 

Also, Jim shines the spotlight on Janet Hayes Walker, Sheldon Harnick, and the great team of Jones and Schmidt!
