Branden Jacobs-Jenkins: "No one is really challenged to think bigger"

Exeunt Magazine: “None of us started out thinking that Broadway was in any way a thing that we should care about. We accepted as a given that commercial theatre is not a space we would have, so we’re committed to experimentation in part because that’s what was happening Off-Broadway at the time.”

I’m interviewing Branden Jacobs-Jenkins in the bowels of the Orange Tree Theatre (which I can now attest is at least 50% staircases), and am not quite resisting the temptation to nerd out over both his work, and the avowedly experimental New York playwriting scene he’s a part of.
