This week on Yes But Why, we talk to Houston improv community leader, Steven M. Saltsman.
Steven M. Saltsman is the co-founder of Pronoia Theater in Houston, Texas.
Steven and his business partner, Aaron Garrett, founded Pronoia in the summer of 2018 as a theater for everyone and so they seek out unconventional theater spaces to present their shows.
A fan of building communities, Steven was also one of the founding members of Station Theater, the oldest dedicated long-form improv theater in Houston. As a performer, Steven has completed the conservatory program at Second City theater in Chicago and he has performed improv all over the world.
In our chat, we talk about what it’s like to produce small, independent theater. Steven talks about the magical smell of cleaning products, transporting him to the time when he performed in his first school play.
We go down quite a few philosophical rabbit holes. Steven brings up The Ship of Theseus, and I can’t help it, so we talk at length about my 18 year theory.
We talk about organization as an important element of success. And Steven teaches me about the 7 types of conflict in improv scenes. This was a great conversation and I can’t wait for you to hear it.
Support Steven M. Saltsman by watching comedy shows produced by Pronoia Theater. You can also check out Steven performing in the Pronoia show, “Magical Lying Hour.”
