Every week, the culture critics at Token Theatre Friends bring their fresh perspectives to the performing arts on their podcast and video series. You can find the podcast on SpotifyiTunes, and Stitcher (look for the all-red logo). The video series is available on YouTube. The TTF theme song is by Sean Mason (with vocals by Angela Ramos). The video animation is by Brad Ogden, with logos by Jason Simon.

In this episode, Jose speaks to world renowned soprano Laquita Mitchell. This month she stars in On Site Opera’s Lesson Plan, an adaptation of Georg Philipp Telemann’s Der Schulmeister which takes place on Zoom.

During the pandemic, in addition to performing, Mitchell has hosted a series of conversations with artists and thinkers she admires, which in addition to being a delight, are often enlightening. Mitchell spoke about what she’s learned, seen, and heard during the last two years, and briefly touched on upcoming projects.
