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.
This new podcast series from the Civilians features live recordings from a show we produced at Joe’s Pub in NYC called “Sex Variants 1941,” which drew inspiration from Dr. George W. Henry’s medical study, “Sex Variants: A Study of Homosexual Patterns.” Throughout the series, actor Trey Lyford plays Dr. Henry, quoting directly from “Sex Variants.”
In this episode, Nina Hellman and Brandon Miller play actual study participants, Grace McLean performs her song “(not) Normal” and Brandon Davidson sings Tim Acito’s “I Have Had the Earth.”
