One of the biggest pleasures of my job is being able to talk to artists who have found success and who also possess the self-awareness to understand the process of how they did so. In fact, I did an entire interview series for Artists In Action with people from all corners of the creative industry, trying to get to the essence of what makes someone successful in the arts. The not-so-surprising conclusion: there's no one wayto do things. What works for one person may not work for another. But one thing that was abundantly clear from everyone I talked to was that it takes hard work, persistence, and (above all else) consistently being true to what it is that you love. That last part most certainly rings true in the career of playwright, screenwriter, and lyricist, David Lindsay-Abaire, and I am truly thrilled to present to you my interview with him.
