We get into why Virago has staged their shows at Theater Asylum in Los Angeles and The Flea in New York, and how taking shows to those art-mecca’s has an impact on the writers, performers and the scene from which they came.
We also get into Actors Equity Association and their BAPP / 99-seat Waiver / Showcase contracts in SF / LA / NY respectively, how Equity has failed to ensure a living wage for actors. And we touch briefly on Re-Imagine LA Theater: A Call for Action that’s sweeping the LA theater scene right now.
We also answer NeatTweets! from listeners including how do you handle stage fright? What is stage right? And how can I retire early? Tweet at us questions for next @bornreadyshow or @realduncanwold or @drhobbs
As always, thanks for listening, and please share it if you dig it!
