'This Little Light of Mine'
Performers are often tasked with walking a thin line: how does someone express oneself while also embodying another character?
In this installment of StoryCorps Tampa Bay, playwright, director, and co-founder of St. Petersburg’s Studio@620, Bob Devin Jones, talks with one of his many mentees, Sharon Scott, about how they, as artists, can recognize each other at a deeper level, beyond the performance.
