It's Episode 84 with Emily Penick, hosted by Olena Hodges! We talk about her new lady-driven company, RED Stage, and their flagship production, Worse than Tigers, currently running at ACT Lab. Worse than Tigers, a new play by Mark Chrisler, is a somewhat fantastical exploration of the role social media plays in modern relationships, particularly as we grieve.  You won't want to miss this show, and it closes April 17!

Natalie Copeland

It's Episode 83 with Natalie Copeland! 

We talk about her show, Challenger, which opens today at Pocket Theatre. Learn more at www.rockettheatrelab.com.
Fly back to 1986 and train with teachers Christa McAuliffe and Barbara Morgan as they prepare to go where no civilian has gone before - space! From the "vomit comet" to the interview room and the space shuttle itself, explore the heights of friendship, what it means to take risks, and our place in space with this all-woman ensemble as they become teachers, astronauts, engineers, and more. Never shying from the ultimate fate that media, politics, and technical malfunctions portend, this feminist re-telling of the Challenger disaster story is a passionate love poem to those who dared to go, their families, and their vision for the world through movement, song, and memoir.


Thursday, April 7, @ 8pm

Friday April 15 @ 10pm
