Clopton said the collaboration highlights the creative hub that Newburyport has become.
“This is what I love,” Clopton said. “All of the overlaps are there in all different mediums, whether it be visual arts or the theater or film or dance. We all share in the same sort of process, and to be able to have a conversation and share our thoughts is an enormous opportunity, and it’s what makes Newburyport so amazing. It’s wonderful to have all of these great artists living here.”
“It makes intellectual, artistic sense,” Bachrach said of the collaboration. “But it is also good for our cultural business in the community, too.
“We hope that this will grow into more of the same. Not only between The Actors Studio and the Newburyport Art Association but rather across the city.”
