The Work of Art: Southern Rep's Five Year Road Tour

Oct 9, 2019

This week on The Work of Art, an interview with Alex Smith, Technical Director for Southern Rep Theatre (SRT). Southern Rep has been New Orleans’ premiere professional theatre for a few decades, and lost their permanent residence in 2012. The company went on a local tour of New Orleans' theater spaces. Smith moved here from the Northwest in 2012 and quickly picked up work; for awhile, he was at Le Petit Theatre as they restructured the facility. In 2013, as SRT was leaving its long-time home in Canal Place, Alex came on board as Technical Director. He joins us to share the company’s five-year use of a variety of existing city theaters until their relocation at the new facility on Bayou Road in Gentilly.
