Hop to Broadway is hosted by the Hop's—and Broadway's—John Heginbotham (Dartmouth Dance Ensemble, Dance Heginbotham and the 2019 Tony Award-winning Oklahoma!). Episode 1 rebroadcasts John's conversation with Chavkin filmed last January when Chavkin was in residence at Dartmouth with her devised-theater company the TEAM.

Chavkin won a "best direction" Tony for Hadestown and was nominated for Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812. She also is founding Artistic Director of Brooklyn-based company the TEAM, whose work also has been seen in the U.K.'s National Theatre, Royal Court, Old Vic, and beyond. In addition to Dave Malloy's Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 (Ars Nova, A.R.T., Broadway) and Anaïs Mitchell's Hadestown (New York Theatre Workshop, Edmonton Citadel, London's National Theatre, Broadway), Chavkin's freelance work includes Arthur Miller's The American Clock (Old Vic), Matt Gould and Carson Kreitzer's Lempicka (Williamstown), Caryl Churchill's Light Shining in Buckinghamshire (New York Theatre Workshop), Marco Ramirez's The Royale (Old Globe, Lincoln Center), Bess Wohl's Small Mouth Sounds (Ars Nova, Off-Broadway, national tour), Sarah Gancher's I'll Get You Back Again (Round House), and multiple collaborations with Taylor Mac including The Lily's Revenge, Act 2 (HERE); and with Chris Thorpe, including Confirmation and Status. Chavkin is a recipient of a Tony award for Best Direction as well as an additional Tony nomination, three Obie Awards, a Drama Desk Award, multiple Lortel nominations, two Doris Duke Impact Award nominations, and the 2017 Smithsonian Award for Ingenuity along with Dave Malloy.
