Jeffrey Seller — Setting the Stage: The Power of Live Art

Jeffrey Seller believes there are ways in which the digital age falls short. For him, the experience of live theater fulfills a deep visceral need for live storytelling in a way that cannot be replaced.

Seller’s own process is predicated on searching for those special moments in which the hair stands up on his arms and he is completely in the theater’s thrall—and his legacy of musicals, from Rent and Avenue Q to In the Heights and Hamilton, has inspired that same reaction in millions of theatergoers.
