About Barbara Pitts McAdams (she/her):
Our guest today is best known for her work with Tectonic Theater Project. Barbara Pitts McAdams was in the original company of The Laramie Project, a play devised from interviews with the residents of Laramie, Wyoming after the brutal murder of gay university of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard. Barb and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project share playwriting credit with artistic director Moisés Kaufman, and Barb is the co-author with Kaufman of MOMENT WORK: Tectonic’s Process of Devising Theater. Barb, as she asked us to call her, has worked regionally as an actor and appears on all the usual NY tv shows, but has found herself more and more called to teach and devise plays. Her current passion project is #HereToo: stories of youth activism.
