The Carols – 1812

On today’s podcast, three lovely ladies, Caroline Dooner, Emily Kleimo and Rachel Camp join me to talk about the World Premiere of 1812 Productions’ “The Carols”. We discuss the position of women in the mid 40’s and today. We even get a sample of harmony from the sisters. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT THE CAROLS

It’s Christmastime in 1944. War is raging on the other side of the Atlantic and, here at home, a group of neighbors gathers at the VFW to make the most of what they have. 1812’s newest original comedy brings us an oddball friendship between a trio of singing sisters, an out-of-work Catskills comic, a limping piano player, and their grumpy Scrooge-like landlady. The Carols is a heartfelt and hopeful musical that looks at making something right with all the wrong people.

ABOUT CONFUSION

Confusion is a comic exploration of the transient nature of identity in the modern world as seen through the eyes of the clown. Hank Curry explores the pitfalls and pratfalls of modern life as he tries on seven unique identities, each with their own troubles and travails. Prepare to meet a meek matador, a consternated conductor, and a ballerina nobly clinging to her dignity as the floor beneath her refuses to cooperate. Run away and join the circus of modern society with this new play that reveals the common characteristics that make us human in ways that can be challenging but are ultimately joyful.

Radiant Vermin – Claire Moyer

On today’s podcast, I meet with Claire Moyer, director of Inis Nua’s production of “Radiant Vermin”. Claire is nominated for Best Direction of a Play for last season’s production of “SPINE”. I ask her if there is any pressure to continue on her path of success or is this just validation that she is on the right path. I think, it’s a little of both. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT RADIANT VERMIN

A free house? That’s right, and you will not believe what Jill and Ollie will do to get their dream home just right! But this greedy couple feels so deserving that they don’t see the moral high ground sliding right out from under them. A dark and shockingly funny play, Radiant Vermincould be hazardous to moral absolutists and government conspiracy theorists.
