    Erin B. Mee of “Play In Your Bathtub”

    Listen in as Erin B. Mee, conceiver & director of Play In Your Bathtub: An Immersive Audio Spa for Physical Distancing, discusses why we should call it “physical” distancing as opposed to “social” distancing, getting inspiration from quarantine, engaging all five senses, inviting the audience to be creative themselves, putting everyone on the same time-line from their respective locations, and the importance of giving us a sense that we’re going to an “event” in these strange days.

    “A lot of our work is really co-created with the audience, in the sense that we have all kinds of ‘invitations’ …and I think this play is almost all invitation…because that’s where we are at this moment…”

    Nick Mecikalski of “Really Really Gorgeous”

    Nick Mecikalski of “Really Really Gorgeous”

    Listen in as Really Really Gorgeous playwright Nick Mecikalski discusses what happens when the media is filtered through only one lens, trust in personal relationships, the journey from digging a script out of a drawer to getting on the stage, the power of celebrity, and “what happens when climate change gets personal.”

    “We know this is already happening for people around the world…the really scary questions that I think creep in the back of our minds…will it change whether I can follow my dreams? Will it change my career? Will it change where I have to live? Will it change my relationships?…”

    Richard Thieriot & Therese Plaehn of “Monsoon Season”

    Richard Thieriot & Therese Plaehn of “Monsoon Season”

    Listen in as the performers of Lizzie Vieh’s new play Monsoon Season, Richard Thieriot & Therese Plaehn, discuss the development of this play from a 7-minute one-night-only solo piece to a set of solos, making something horrifying but also incredibly funny, how your performance changes when a play’s world expands, the benefit of working with smart, generous, welcoming people, and what can can happen when the seed of a piece is tossed into fertile ground.

    “…so it’s dark, and the emotional terrain is dark, but there’s also, hopefully, occasionally, laughs […]”

    “…I remember being disturbed…and sure enough, it’s funny as hell…”

So Excited

I’m working in NY for a month and a half this summer and I really hope a few episodes of Go See a Show drop while I’m there. I study theater, and would love to support some independent theatre while I’m there!

Great podcast, great listening all around

Really appreciate this podcast and Robert’s focus on supporting the off off Broadway community. I’m slightly biased, but I think some of the best work in NYC comes from OOB theater and it is refreshing that Robert and Go See a Show are highlighting these inventive artists and collaborators.
