Episode 9: Em Piro, Founder, St. Lou Fringe

On this episode of STAGE GROK, I talk with Em Piro, founder and executive director of the St. Lou Fringe. Now in its fourth year, we talk about how a fringe festival operates, what she does, what the artists do, how shows are chosen, and why a fringe festival is important to our city.
