In today’s episode, we dive into the world of beauty through the medium of theater. We talk with experts in the theater, including playwrights, directors, and actors, about how the medium can build bridges in today’s fractured world, why storytelling is essential in the Christian life, and how theater can move our hearts perhaps more than any other art form.
