Ten years after "The Great Immensity," received a National Science Foundation grant that drew the ire of Congressional Republicans, The Civilians' Artistic Director Steve Cosson discusses the complicated relationship between the government and arts organizations.
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.
