Beth Burns is the sort of person who is better than you at everything but doesn’t get all showy about it, and that allows you to retain your dignity. Altogether a nice sort of person to be around. She doesn’t lord her award nominations over you, or her wins, or that she can beat you in arm wrestling
Beth Burns is the artistic director of The Hidden Room, by her phrasing a “theatrical curiosity shop” focused on audience experience. And honestly, she’s very good at it. That skill actually is the prism that makes her current project truly fascinating.
