4 American Players Theatre artists on how APT is redefining 'classic'

American Players Theatre is a literary place. Where some theater companies emphasize dance, experimental design or new voices, this classical repertory company in Spring Green has been driven by poetry and prose for 45 years. Productoins this year involve diverse teams of artists, both behind the scenes and on the stages. We asked four artists working at APT this summer to talk about four of the season’s plays.
