Flux Sunday, 10/14

Post and pathetic iPhone photos by August Schulenburg.

(What is Flux Sunday?)

From a 90s call center to a mythic Africa, from academic skirmishes to political battles, from earth to moon and back again, this Flux Sunday covered a lot of ground in a few short hours.

-The return of Katie Hartke! The return of Katie Hartke! ‘Nuff said.
-Nandita capturing the zany, unfulfilled energy of Suzie in Kristen’s Mysteries of the Unknown
-Kate knocking the ambitiously naive Valerie out of the park in Lauren’s Carolyn and Bruce
-Getting to act with the amazing Shaun B. Wilson! Such a generous scene partner in an intense scene.
-Marielle’s bold staging of Kennedy V in the round, which paid off big time during Teddy’s speech to the Senate, and LBJ’s televised address standing on the piano bench – there seems to be a trend of stretching what the space can do, and it’s exciting to see directors exploring as much as the playwrights.
-The unmitigated delight of Alisha’s manipulations as Rose Kennedy – what’s age got to do with it?
-Heather, Gabby and Isaiah nailing the switch in tone from political thriller to intimate tragedy in Earth Rise – I’m beginning to find the voice of this story.

If you were there, what memories sit in the round of the mind?
