As a creativity coach, performer, writer, speaker and podcaster, she champions this cause around the world—on Broadway, off-Broadway, in classrooms and writing, and on TV, film, sound recordings and the Internet. She created and played a character based on herself in the original Broadway musical [title of show], and the off-Broadway musical NOW. HERE. THIS. (original cast recordings available on Sh-K-Boom records, available for licensing via Concord Theatricals).
She created and hosts the freewheeling chat show Side by Side by Susan Blackwell on Broadway.com. With Laura Camien, she launched the creativity podcast “The Spark File” (thesparkfile.com).
