2015 was peppered with stories of misbehaving theater-goers. There was the man who clambered on stage at a production of "Hand To God" on Broadway, looking for a place to charge his cell phone. Star Patti LuPone took it upon herself to snatch a texting audience member’s phone away during a performance of "Shows for Days."

The cast of "As You Like It" also endured some outlandish behavior this weekend. Producer Myke Johns paid a visit to the New American Shakespeare Tavern in Atlanta to speak with cast members Dani Herd, Jonathan Horne and Jeffrey Stephenson.

We've asked the leaders of major Atlanta arts organizations to come in and share their thoughts with us for a mini-series we're calling "Arts 2015." The local luminaries shared with us their reflections and forecasts on their particular fields and the unique challenges and benefits of being a leader of the arts in Atlanta.
