    Alex Beige, Dante Green, & 김채송 Chaesong Kim of The Makers’ Enemble’s Short Play Festival

    Listen in as director 김채송 Chaesong Kim (Alien Play), playwright Alex Beige (Blackpilled, A Blueprint), and director Dante Green (Light + House) of The Makers’ Ensemble’s Short Play Festival, discuss immigration stores, where love stories meet ghost stories, playwrights writing plays about playwrights writing plays, capturing suffering, growth over time, and taking care of your artists.

    “…every play felt like it ended too soon, like it was just the beginning of a learning experience…inviting you into an aspect of the playwright’s world, and leaving you with just enough to understand that you’re not alone, in whatever experience you have…”

    Kenneth Keng, Annaporva Green, & Chisom Awachie of “Brought Up”

    Listen in as playwright Kenneth Keng, director Annaporva Green, and actor & projection designer Chisom Awachie of Brought Up discuss lobotomized flesh puppets, encouraging participation and not “screaming and running away,” gratitude for designers, complicity and unthinking loyalty, Capri Suns, finding “a different way to do this shit,” and survival (with kindness) into the future.

    “…it is about the visceral appeal of warfare, and all the equipment…the whiz-bang fighters, the big ships, the guns…things which I, for a long time, loved, and loved learning about, and loved imagining. It is also about the urgent, and near-impossible task of ending warfare. Recently, a lot of those things I loved have lost a lot of their appeal to me…”

    Nia Akilah Robinson & Julia Greer of “Push Party”

    Listen in as Push Party playwright Nia Akilah Robinson, along with Producing Artistic Director of The Hearth Julia Greer, discuss just what a “push party” is, high school drama, naming characters, showing unspoken love, enmeshment, making peace with what’s passed down to us, showing up, and how friendship remains.

    “…something that The Hearth was born out of is, wanting to make plays for people that may be going to school…that maybe don’t see themselves in a play. How could you pick up this play, and do it with your friends, and it would be accessible to you…”

    “…it’s such a funny idea…but it proves the fallacy of technology, how it’s letting us down in some ways. But we still get to bring it into the room, and engage with it, and have fun with the miscommunications, which is very Shakespearean…”

    Listen in as Luis Feliciano, Kristen Hoffman, Penelope Deen, & Padraig Bond of Torch Ensemble’s The Climate Fables: Debating Extinction & The Trash Garden, winner of “Best Play” in the New York City Fringe, discuss playing with trash, constant improvisation, clowning, casting the audience, ouija boards, bringing play to tragedy, and making a connection.

    “…for me as an actor, I really feel like this play is so much about, ‘what do you do when the world is ending?’ You just play some games with your friends, and hope you stay ok…”

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.
