The Show About Shows Podcast #6: 'Sex with Strangers'

We brainstorm about theater and social media, and review Sex with Strangers at the Lyceum Space


Published:

In this week’s episode of San Diego Magazine’s performing arts podcast, hosts Erin Glenny, Kim Cunningham, and Dan Letchworth share what’s new in the local theater scene, like a joint musical salon between The Old Globe and SDSU’s Musical Theatre MFA program; and Italian superstar Zucchero and Gene Kelly’s widow, Patricia Ward Kelly, coming to Balboa Theatre (though not at the same time).

Also, is the audience meant to delight in or despise the behavior of the characters in Sex with Strangers? The latest provocative play from the SD Rep left us with plenty of ethical qualms to mull over.

Plus, producer David Martin joins us to brainstorm how theater companies might better take advantage of their device-inclined audiences. Are actors’ union contracts and traditional theater etiquette alienating a generation that relates to everything via instant, free, shared media? Surely we amateurs can come up with a perfect solution in the span of 30 minutes.
