R&D Program Director Megan McClain interviews Associate Artist Rebecca Hart about her project with composer David Kornfeld being developed in the Civilians R&D Group. Based partly on their own neurodiverse lives, the work asks questions about creativity, sanity, and what we consider "normal."
This week’s episode features monologues & music based on interviews with porn stars for Michael Friedman and Bess Wohl’s new musical, “Pretty Filthy.” Actors Emily Rossell, Greg Hildreth and Colleen Werthmann portray adult entertainment pros Avy Scott, Dan Silver and Kylie Ireland, respectively. Rossell also sings Friedman’s “First Contract Girl.” Also, a live audience at Joe’s Pub plays Pornified Broadway, a game in which they create porn titles from the names of Broadway shows.
