Produced by RYCO Theatricals as a part of their podcast series RYCO LIVE, our show BEHIND THE TABLE takes an in-depth look at the creative process and the creators behind it. We are taking the audition table and flipping it to be more inclusive to BIPOC and other stories that deserve to take their rightful place behind the table. Every Tuesday at 6:00pm Eastern, our host, Cherri Nelle Thompson, will interview a different creative live on our social media @rycotheatricals.
