We delve into new musical “KPOP,” with co-conceiver and librettist Jason Kim, director Teddy Bergman of Woodshed Collective, and Ars Nova Artistic Director Jason Eagan discuss who discuss creating this unique production with co-hosts Susan Haskins and theater critic Elisabeth Vincentelli.

The show shares the conflicts of the many characters involved, as well as their captivating music.
