On this episode, we’re joined by Mathew Green, director, and Katie Baldwin, cast member, from the Station Theater’s 8, the Play. The “play” is taken from transcripts and interviews of the trial that overturned Prop 8 in California, the law the elminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in that state. 8 is a special performance that will run for two nights only (both nights have already sold out). We chat about the play, how Mathew secured the performance rights, how the cast interprets characters based on real peope, why it’s locally relevant, and how to keep the momentum moving forward. If you don’t have the details, go read Tracy’s excellent piece right now.
