On Friday, September 19th, 2014, NPR host Michel Martin had a conversation on the changing Broadway landscape. She sat down with award-winning playwrights from diverse walks of life, exploring how artists are challenging a canon that has traditionally been by, for and about the white experience.
The conversation featured David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park), Lydia Diamond (Stick Fly), and Kristoffer Diaz. Tony-Award nominee Stephen McKinley Henderson performed an excerpt from August Wilson's American Century Cycle.
