One time for the #Rodeo!

On today’s podcast, we take the elevator up to Studio 5 at the Walnut Street Theatre to chat with Artistic Director, Rich Rubin of Quince Productions about the next production, RODEO, written by Philip Dawkins. This production has recruited the talents of painter and illustrator, Anthony (Tony) Palumbo, whose work is well-known by any Quince artist. And, representing the cast, we are joined at the end by Michael Manley. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT RODEO

Rough and tumble cowgirl Cody and her persnickety mule Sprezzatura ride into town fixin’ to win the annual rodeo. Only one problem: girls aren’t allowed to compete. Unwilling to lay down the lasso so easily, Cody and Sprezzatura whip up the perfect plan to disguise themselves as a boy and a horse and sneak their way into the competitors’ ring. Western-y and Shakespearean-y shenanigans ensue when a dastardly villain, a slew of unique horses, and an unexpected romance come between Cody and her master plan to win the day.

Doing Dahmer

Today’s podcast features Josh Hitchens, who always seems to have an iron in the fire. His solo piece focused on the life of  serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer from the point of view of Dahmer himself. Society has a great interest in understanding what goes on in the minds of people whose actions are not like any we would perform. Or, maybe we all have a serial streak that we repress. Either way, it’s a safe way to explore inside the mind and attempt to draw similarities and differences. Stay Tuned!

The Submission

Has it ever really crossed your mind, the origin of a story that plays out on a stage, movie or tv screen? Does it matter? Have we gotten to a point in society that if a story does not have the politically correct back story, that it’s considered invalid? We here at REP RADIO never really thought about it until we sat down with playwright Jeff Talbott and Artistic Director Rich Rubin of the Quince Productions offering, “The Submission”. Stay Tuned.

the-submission-best-logo

A young caucasian playwright pens a play under a pseudonym about growing up poor and African-American. When a major theater festival wants to do his play, he hires an African-American actress to “play” the playwright. His boyfriend can’t talk him out of it, his best friend can’t talk him out of it, and the actress herself has doubts. But the plan proceeds with some hilarious results. An important play, funny and powerful, as questions of prejudice and acceptance are considered within the comic framework.

ABOUT NOBODY’S HOME
