Setting the Scenes with Paul Kuhn

On today’s podcast, while “Waiting For Godot”, I ran into Paul Kuhn and we had a chat about the many memorable scenic designs of Curio Theatre Company. While Paul gets the credit, he reminds us that it takes a village to create the worlds that immerse the audience and even gives some tips on how not to limit your ideas. Stay Tuned!

Paul Kuhn – “Waiting For Godot” – Curio Theatre Company

ABOUT WAITING FOR GODOT

Dan Hodge, company member and director of Curio’s 2016 Barrymore recommended production of Death of a Salesman,  returns to direct the absurdist classic, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett.

Meet Vladimir and Estragon on a country road as they await the coming of Godot. How long they wait, who else they meet, and if Godot shall ever arrive, is the matter of much banter, antics and reverie. Considered one of the most significant plays of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett’s tragicomic masterpiece is funny, poignant, soulful and hilarious.

Featuring:
Brian McCann, Paul Kuhn
Robert DaPonte and Harry Slack

Set Design- Paul Kuhn
Lighting Design- Tim Martin

Discussing #Curio’s “The Matter of Frank Shaefer”

ABOUT THE MATTER OF FRANK SHAEFER

A World Premiere

With gay marriage being legal in 32 states plus D.C., how will religious organizations who now deny marriage to same-sex couples respond? Our play,The Matter of Frank Schaefer, witnesses the United Methodist Church grappling with that very question. Based on the unprecedented religious trial of the Reverend Frank Schaefer, Curio’s new play is an assemblage of discrimination, defiance, love, family and passionate testimony. Still, countless interviews and research have not yet yielded an ending for the play The Matter of Frank Schaefer as this defiant pastor will have his case taken to the United Methodist’s highest court, the Judicial Council. It looks like the Judicial Council will not only decide the fate of The Reverend Frank Schaefer but it will also decide the ending of The Matter of Frank Schaefer.

ABOUT DANCING AT LUGHNASA
By Brian Friel

Sometimes the high grass and golden fields of Ballybeg, Ireland can be unforgiving to the five unmarried Mundy sisters. Brian Friel’s poetic and heartwarming masterpiece invokes Irish tribal dancing that awakens the sisters’ long buried desires, vanishing dreams, and a last chance at happiness in the summer of 1936.
