Wilma – PASSAGE

On today’s podcast, I visit Wilma Theater’s HotHouse Company to talk about the World Premiere of Christopher Chen’s “PASSAGE”. I am joined by Krista Apple, Lindsay Smiling and Sarah Gliko to talk about a production stripped down for simplicity  with many layers of complexity that make for a mindful night of theatre. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT PASSAGE

A World Premiere by Christopher Chen
Directed by Blanka Zizka

Imagine you’re in an exotic new country — occupied by your nation. Now you are a distinguished doctor, but a cab will not stop for you. Now you’re in a cave so dark, so quiet, you lose track of who you are. Suddenly, there’s a sound and —

Welcome to Passage, a fantasia inspired by E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India that uses the theater’s primal evocative powers to examine the most essential questions of our time. 

Written by Obie Award-winning playwright Christopher Chen, this World Premiere is a perfect vehicle for the Wilma HotHouse Company’s passion and transformative prowess.

Kittson O’Neill on Copenhagen

On today’s podcast, I caught up with Kittson O’Neill, director of Lantern Theater Company’s extended production of “Copenhagen” by Michael Frayn. We talk about her first experience with the piece, directing the Artistic Director, the cast and their return to the work and the design. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT COPENHAGEN

A fascinating mystery: why did German physicist Werner Heisenberg visit his old mentor and Danish counterpart Niels Bohr in 1941 while their countries were at war? Was he looking for clues to atomic secrets, asking for absolution, or searching for something unknowable? As the characters wrestle with their memories and motives, what becomes clear is the ultimate uncertainty of why we do what we do. Perhaps the greatest play ever written about science, Michael Frayn’s riveting drama puts us in the heart of the greatest moral dilemma of the 20th century.
