Josh Radnor Speaks On "Rise"


From the producers of "Hamilton" and "Parenthood," and inspired by a true story, about a working-class community's high school theater program taking on an unconventional new leader. As dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) takes over the lagging department, he encourages his students to unleash their creativity and explore new means of self-expression. But even though the students discover talents and ambitions they never knew they had, not everyone in town is thrilled. Upset by challenges brought by change, enraged faculty and skeptical parents contest Mr. Mazzu's galvanizing efforts. But with passionate fervor running through the town's veins, no one can deny a revolution is underway. Watch Radnor discuss his role in this inspiring show.
