Director/choreographer Kenneth L. Roberson and director Tommy Kail have helmed two Tony Award-winning shows that upended the definition of the American musical - Kenneth as the choreographer on Avenue Q and Tommy as the director of Hamilton. But thats not all that the two artists have in common. Both have long associations with New York City-based theatre company SAY, the Stuttering Association for the Young. Originally founded in 2001 by director Taro Alexander as Our Time Theatre Company, SAY''s work with young artists who stutter has grown to include speech therapy, a camp, and online resources - including a blog - in addition to its core programs encouraging young people to write and tell their stories theatrically and musically.
