Advertising Agency KidGlov Podcast Hosts Lied Center Executive Director Bill Stephan


KidGlov, a marketing and advertising agency based in Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently hosted Lied Center Executive Director and Artistic Director Bill Stephan on his podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explores the incredible history of the Lied Center and how the performing arts center has pivoted during the pandemic.

“There is magic that happens during live performances, and the Lied Center has done some truly impressive feats over the past two years to ensure the show continues in Lincoln,” said Kelley Peterson, vice -president, creative director at KidGlov. “It was a pleasure to sit down with Bill to learn how they accomplished this and hear what’s to come in the Lied.”

Since its inception, the Lied Center for Performing Arts has been committed to serving the community and the state by bringing national and international artists to our stages, while developing and supporting programs that span all regions of the Nebraska. Arts Across Nebraska, a major program combining statewide touring, extended residencies and collaborations with communities outside of Lincoln, is the direct result of visionary thinking and hard work by staff and community supporters. Today, Friends of the Lied, a statewide support organization, receives donations from hundreds of Nebraskanians for programming, education, and operations, and also shares the message of the Lied across regions of the state.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Lied Center has been featured in The New York Times and USA Today for its shift to online performances and its rapid return to socially distanced performances during the pandemic. Their efforts and commitment to safe protocols have become a resource for other performing arts organizations to reopen safely.

“The pandemic and the crowds are not good,” Stephan said. “But I thought to myself, ‘We have to find a way to fulfill our mission. We still need to educate, inspire and entertain the people of Nebraska, even in the face of a pandemic. And so we quickly started thinking and finding ways to do that.
