The positive energy is palpable in our final scheduled KTGLO of the season.

Resourcefulness, adaptability and nerves of steel characterize our guest list tonight.
What does it take to go from college to China, build a successful acting career, diversify into dialect coaching, make a life and then find yourself stranded back in an America that's almost a foreign country to you?

What happens when your life's work is based on collaboration with other creators and that becomes untenable?

How do you grasp the opportunity to make a real difference to the social and political fabric of a country while locked down during a Pandemic?

And why does Steve want to talk about 'Ratatouille the TikTok Musical'?

Lisa Collins, Stephen Cole and Mary Ann Lamb's enthusiasm give us all the reasons we need to be brave and stay brave as we move into the New Year and begin to catch a glimmer of a light at the end of the tunnel.

Robin and Steve would like to thank all the KTGLO guests who have been so generous with their time over the past six months. It's been a privilege and an education for us.

Look out for further episodes from time to time, but for now we'll just say 'Goodnight Robin'.

This has been a Sherman Players production.

As we look forward to 2021 it's fitting that our penultimate KTGLO episode covers many of the themes we've explored over the series. Jennifer Roberts, Teri Hansen-Kocyigit and Junie Hoang have each encountered the dread, resignation, normalization and opportunies of the COVID pandemic.

'Hope' has been a regular feature of our show - but as rightly observed by Teri, we're now moving beyond hope into a new phase, one that affects all aspects of the Performing Arts - creative, technological, structural, ideological, cultural and personal. Uncertain as the future may be, one thing our guests agree on is that this is now a time of possibilities!

Please join us next week for our final scheduled show in this series. We'll see you on January 4 2021 at 7.30pm Eastern live on the Sherman Playhouse Facebook Page.
