Lisa Gaye Dixon sits down with Protagonist Pizza Productions to discuss her acting and directing process, the importance of humor, and more. As an experienced and passionate director and performer — both locally and beyond (Chicago, for instance) — Dixon brings a wealth of knowledge and wit to her students in the classroom as well.

She'll be directing In The Next Room, or the vibrator play at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts from October 26th to November 5th. This is a project she has been yearning to stage here for years, so make sure to buy your tickets to see what is sure to be a great show.
