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.
The fourth and final episode of our series on the LGBTQ community — recorded live at the Barrow Theater in NYC — features Emmy-nominee Laverne Cox performing a monologue based on Dan Domingues’ interview with a staff member at Housing Works NYC. Also, Stephen Plunkett embodies an interviewee he met in Colorado Springs, before the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” Finally Mike Brun and Alyse Louis sing “Barricade” from “Times Square,” the new musical by Jill Sobule, Robin Eaton and Jim Lewis.
