Hosts Meghan and Holly keep it in the working family this week with Holly’s co-worker, Sulu LeoNimm, a Theatre of the Oppressed NYC (TONYC) Joker and Interim Executive Director, actor, director, and parent of 2 small kids. Hear about Sulu’s very serious start in drag performance that eventually led to an Asian musical mashup drag show in the back of straight bars. We get to dive into Peg-ass-us, a romantic sex-ed burlesque they created, performed, and toured with their real-life partner (and yes, it’s about what you think it’s about) and how their relationship with theatre has changed since becoming a parent. Learn more about TONYC, how they are shifting the nature of their work, how TONYC is different from other theatre companies, and how to approach administrative tasks with care, including the difference of getting something done right versus getting it done in a way that serves the needs of the people involved.
