Bianca Vivion: Reflections


Each season, commentator and essayist Bianca Vivion will host post-performance discussions at Theatre for a New Audience with guests from the worlds of the arts and activism, lensing the work onstage through political and cultural questions that matter to a rising generation of New Yorkers.

At age 14, Bianca Vivion became the youngest National Public Radio correspondent, writing weekly commentaries for All Things Considered. At 16, she was chosen to head NPR’s youth news desk at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. At 17, Vivion became the youngest journalist nominated for the California Journalism Award for excellence in radio reporting, and at 18, she became the youngest opinion writer for The New York Times. She received a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University and recently served as a New York Times and CNN commentator on the 2020 Democratic presidential debates.

Join us for the next Reflections on Thursday, May 25, after the 7:00pm performance of Fuente Ovejuna.
