This week, Diep delivers a rant about the Tony Award nominations, and why it all feels anti-climactic.
This week the Friends welcome one of their favorite people: Heidi Schreck. Schreck was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play What the Constitution Means to Me, which ran on Broadway in 2019. Now that play has been filmed and will be released on Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 16. Schreck drops by to talk about the current state of our democracy, becoming a new mom (of twins!), and why it’s so hard to film theater.
Here are links to the things mentioned in this episode:
- Karen Olivo’s reaction to being nominated for a Tony Award.
- What the Constitution Means to Me on Amazon Prime.
- What the Constitution Means to Me script, published by Theatre Communications Group
- This week’s Patreon shoutout: Nicole, who recently created a virtual theatre company called The Masked Collective. They have a new play festival next weekend (October 23rd and 24th at 7PM EST). The play festival will be livestreamed on Facebook and will be available for a week after. Says Nicole: “We’re not charging for admission but encourage people to donate to our Venmo instead @Masked-Collective, as that’s how we’ll be paying the artists involved.”
