Last spring, Associate Artistic Director Justin Waldman interviewed artists who worked on The Old Globe’s production of Hamlet: On the Radio. These interviews shed light on how the project came to life from the unique perspectives of the artists, technicians, and actors involved. Each broadcast was originally live-streamed to Globe donors via Zoom. You can now watch them anytime on the Globe’s YouTube channel.
