Many factors - from cast size, costume demands, balancing comedies and dramas, to the experience value for a theater student - go into designing a season of shows at Western Michigan University's Department of Theater. Jay Berkow, WMU's Director of Music Theater, says that occasionally, there's room for a professor's passion project as well. Berkow takes listeners through all 10 productions in the 2018-19 season, including his passion project: the regional premiere of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
