Red Mountain Theatre lovers, we have news for you! The theatre is hosting a podcast, and the first episode is ready for you to listen to.

What is the Red Mountain Theatre Podcast?

Red Mountain Theatre hopes their new monthly podcast will bring the art community together. Red Mountain Theatre’s Executive Director Keith Cromwell is hosting the podcast. For the first episode, Keith sat down and talked with his old friend Billy Porter. That’s right, the iconic award-winning stage and screen star Billy Porter! Together they talked about using art to create a community and to embrace humanity. 

“We talk a lot about how Birmingham has influenced them and the arts and culture sector in the Magic City. We believe in the influence of this city on the arts and have been lucky enough to work with people who now travel all over the world doing what they love.

This podcast is somewhat of a check-in with those folks. They still love this place, and we want to continue to be a part of their lives.”

– Drew Francis, Director of Operations, Red Mountain Theatre
