storytelling podcast promo with mic

Summary

Beth talks to Stephanie Lazenby who wrote, co-directed and starred in the one-woman show, “Where Do I Begin?” about her experiences growing up in the Bronx in the 70s and 80s. It is a nostalgic, music-infused show that explores her relationship with her dad, as well as how music and objects throughout our lives impact memory.

The show was performed at the West End Theatre in Portsmouth, NH in January 2021 as part of the New Hampshire Theatre Project’s SoloStage Series.

In this two-part interview, Beth and Stephanie talk about the struggles of being creative during the pandemic, overcoming the inner voices that infuse self-doubt, and take on the question, “What makes a good story?” These interviews were recorded in February 2021.
