    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…”

    Listen in as the director of Lost Sock Laundry, Madelyn Chapman, along with the full cast—Jesse Castellanos, Michelle Feza Kuchuk, Fernando Mateo, Jr., Haneen Arafat Murphy, Maria Peyramaure, & Yasmin Ranz-Lind—discuss variations on the immigrant experience, finding the political in the quotidian, theatre in/of/for the community, laundry jokes, cast bonding, actual lost socks, and the freedom to play.

    “…it’s a very human play. It’s looking at the day-to-day life of folks who are struggling with different aspects of the immigrant experience…The sort of ordinary heroism that is in the play…people just do that in life, and it’s not sung very much, the ways that people stand up for each other.”

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.
