The NYTimes wants to know: What Inspired You to Work in Theater?

This summer, The New York Times is publishing essays by its critics about the moments or works that prompted them to write about the arts, along with stories from readers about their own epiphanies. Previously we heard from readers who work in television, classical music, dance, pop music, video games and the visual arts.

Next week, Charles Isherwood will write about what set him on the path toward becoming a theater critic for The Times. We want to hear from theater professionals about what inspired their careers.

Whether you’re a playwright, a community theater manager, an actress, her agent, her understudy, a sound technician, a set painter or a Broadway usher, we want to hear about the theatrical works or experiences that led you to dedicate yourself to the field.

Please submit a comment at this link describing what you do and how an experience in theater led you to your career. Keep submissions under 250 words.

We will present some of your stories alongside Mr. Isherwood’s essay. We look forward to reading about your theatrical inspirations.
