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.
A talk-back with the cast of “You Better Sit Down: Tales from My Parents’ Divorce” kicks off this week’s episode. The show, which recently completed its New York premiere at the Flea Theater, featured actors Matt Maher, Caitlin Miller, Jennifer R. Morris, and Robbie Collier Sublett, all of whom interviewed & played their own parents. In this talk-back, they discuss the process of creating the show with their parents’ involvement. Then, the Flea Theater’s resident acting company, The Bats, presents a short piece created from online and audience responses to “You Better Sit Down.” Next, Dan Domingues performs a monologue that Mia Rovegno crafted from further responses to the show. And finally, the episode closes with a song written & performed by Matt Berger.
