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 the fourth and final episode of the Civilians’ marriage series — recorded live at Joe’s Pub in NYC — Greg McFadden and Brad Heberlee play a couple who celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary by traveling cross-country and exchanging vows in every state that recognizes legal marriage. Also, Susannah Flood and Daoud Heidami present complementary monologues. Finally, Brian Charles Rooney, Annalisa Ledson, Christine Perotta and Erato Kremmyda perform “In Vegas,” a song about a Nevada wedding chapel, written by Erato A. Kremmyda and Maggie-Kate Coleman. Joel Glassman and Talya Klein conducted the interviews for the material in this podcast.
