Ten years after "The Great Immensity," received a National Science Foundation grant that drew the ire of Congressional Republicans, The Civilians' Artistic Director Steve Cosson discusses the complicated relationship between the government and arts organizations.
This week’s episode returns to our investigation of the adult entertainment industry. Here, Alix Lambert plays adult entertainment performer Tabitha Stevens, who discusses plastic surgery; Mia Barron plays an anonymous female talent; and Andrew Kober sings “Squirting 101” by Michael Friedman, a new song about female ejaculation inspired by an interview with porn legend Axel Braun. As research for the new musical “Pretty Filthy,” Civilians artists conducted interviews with adult entertainment performers, directors, agents, and more in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
