It’s always fascinating to be a small piece of an enormous work, such as This is Reading. For months, you hear bits and bobs about the grand scheme but focus only on your tiny piece. This past weekend, we saw it all come together at Franklin Street Station.
In this, the final episode in our “Pretty Filthy” series, actors Emily Ackerman, Daoud Heidami, Nina Hellman, Dael Orlandersmith & Gibson Frazier portray, respectively, porn titans Lynn LeMay, Sebastian Silver, Kelly Holland, Pamela Peaks & Eli Cross. Plus, a live audience at Joe’s Pub in NYC plays porn charades. All monologues are based on interviews conducted for the new Michael Friedman/Bess Wohl musical, “Pretty Filthy.” Special thanks to our interviewing team: Mia Barron, Laura Nix, Taylor Wilcox, and Matt Maher.
