Episode 494. Austin’s Too Busy

Published by austin on

RSC_165It’s been a super hectic busy time so on this Memorial Day, we look back to that day three weeks ago when Peter Eramo, Marketing and Publicity Manager at the Folger Shakespeare Library, took over the microphone and interviewed a young playwright and performer named Austin Tichenor, who talks about the development of William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged) and what it’s been like to perform it in this 400th deathiversary year. Featuring early Shakespearean influences, reduced templates, relationships with audiences, dream cities, creation myth, the problem with Chicago, important dramaturgical questions, and options for future productions. A longer episode this week, as Austin’s too busy to edit it down to a shorter length. (Length 31:01)
