The multi-faceted author, director, composer Elizabeth Swados, discusses her vision of the theater with Newsday critic Linda Winer. Swados speaks about her efforts to teach drama teachers to create original shows with their students; her sometimes rocky journey as a non-mainstream woman composer; the joy she experiences creating, her love of what she does and her admiration for the people with whom she works, qualties she believes has brought her success as a composer; and her belief that it is possible to steadily create meaningful musical theater without trying to make a fortune. Swados speaks about the creation of her musical Runaways, which addressed the potential of adolescents and how they have been underestimated. The show was produced by Joseph Papp and premiered at his Public Theater in 1977, then moved to Broadway in 1978. It is still performed all over the country. Swados expounds on her upbringing in a middle class Jewish family in Buffalo, where since childhood she desired to be creative and make things with others, her longstanding interest in various musical cultures which influences her own music, and the relevance of "ritual" in her work

Best known for the pioneering feminist musical I'm getting my act together and taking it on the road (1978), composer/lyricist/performer team Nancy Ford and Gretchen Cryer speak with Newsday critic Linda Winer. They discuss meeting as undergraduates at DePauw University where they wrote their first musical; the development of their first professional shows in New York such as Now is the time for all good men and The last sweet days of Isaac, which addressed themes of war and pacifism; and their short-lived Broadway show Shelter, which depicted a man's media and technology induced self-delusionment. Ford and Cryer expound on the writing of their show I'm getting my act together, which they initially performed as a cabaret act. The show, which concerns a woman's journey to self realization against her boyfriend's wishes, garnered strong reactions from audiences. It was subsequently produced by Joseph Papp at his Public Theater, and went on to tour, becoming extremely popular with audiences. Ford and Cryer also discuss their new Off-Broadway show Anne of Green Gables, and their writing of the American Girl revue. The musical, based on the series of books by Pleasant Rowland about the life of a ten-year-old girl in various periods of American history, is currently playing at American Girl theaters in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles
