Casting Directors weigh in about what makes a body “beautiful” on stage and screen.

From Hollywood glamour to Disney princesses, western ideas about beauty are inextricably linked to the images we see on our screens and on our stages.  Is it possible for these media to help American culture expand its definition of beauty in a more inclusive way, taking into account race, body type and ability?  We ask a panel of casting directors from LA, New York and DC to answer the question.  Guests include Vickie Thomas from Vickie Thomas Casting (Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Detroit, Hidden Figures), Geoff Josselson and Katja Zarolinski from JZ Casting (Broadway, off-Broadway and regional theater), and Jenna Duncan (OTC’s Associate Artistic & Casting Director, and freelance DMV casting director for many others).  FREE
