High Five – Tiffany Johnson – May/Jun 2020

When Tiffany Johnson, producing artistic director for Pyramid Theatre Company, isn’t busy directing plays, she enjoys hitting these spots around town.

1. Saylorville and Easter lakes:
I love being near water and finding quiet moments in nature to inspire me.

2. xBk:
This intimate performing arts venue on 24th Street near Drake University makes the arts more accessible by being located near an underserved community. Local and regional musicians and other artists perform there.

3. Freedom Blend Coffee:
The mission of this coffee shop is wonderful—and the coffee is really good. With the goal to bring employment training to young people, Freedom of Youth ministry opened the coffeehouse in 2017 in a renovated car wash on Hickman Road.

4. Say What Poetry at Lefty’s:
Lenny Bell has been faithful to this poets collective for years, and you can hear some of the most beautiful words ever from the people who take that stage.

5. Stuffed Olive:
Because, well, who doesn’t love a good martini?
