36th Annual Mid-America Theatre Conference--this year's theme is "Inspiration"--is happening right now in downtown Kansas City, and MDC's own Michelle T. Johnson is playing an important role. All day today and tomorrow at the conference of academic theatre, Michelle will be asked to deliver feedback following the performance of each play as the conference's official Playwriting Symposium Respondent.
Kansas City Repertory Theatre playwright-in-residence Nathan Louis Jackson was originaly scheduled for the gig, but when he became unavailable, the MATC informed Johnson she was the one they wanted. Now, that's inspiration. Congratulations, Michelle!
