On today’s podcast, I am return to the campus of Villanova Theatre to meet with Harriet Power and converse by phone with Playwright and Assistant Professor Michael Hollinger for the opening Villanova Theatre production of “RED HERRING”. This production premiered at Arden Theatre Company in 2000 and has made it’s way to Villanova where it has been on Harriet’s “Must Direct” list ever since. So, a little “Direct Me” and a little “Inside Mind”. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT RED HERRING
Villanova Theatre proudly presents Red Herring, written by Michael Hollinger, directed by Harriet Power, and on stage October 1-13, 2013. Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices.
It’s 1952: America’s on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower’s on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy’s on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy’s daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor — or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. Part hard-boiled mystery, part screwball romantic comedy, Red Herring has charmed audiences around the world with its stylish, clever, and surprising humor.
