Live at The Met Museum: Beauty, Love, Body
<itunes:summary>For this episode of Let Me Ascertain You, we bring you back to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, where The Civilians are artists in residence. As part of our research, we were wandering through some of the museum's halls like the Petrie Court, looking at nude sculptures that fill that space, like Jacques Sarazin’s gentle Leda and the Swan and Antonio Canova’s indifferent Paris. Surrounded by such a rich history of the representation of the human form, we questioned how the human body and what we find beautiful have changed through time.<br /><br /> In our last podcast, we brought you some of our interviews with Met curators who spoke about these dynamic human representations. For this episode, we've gathered other conversations from the past couple of years that also examine these intertwining themes of beauty, love, and the body. First, Jeanine Serralles brings us to the El Buen Pastor Women’s Prison with Ana Yolanda, a contestant in the prison’s annual beauty pageant. Nedra McClyde performs Pookie, from our investigation into Weddings in America, and Damian Bladet gives us an interview with the founder of NYC’s Hot Nude Yoga. Finally, Alyse Louis closes with a performance of the original song “Pretty Monster,” written by Robin Eaton and Jill Sobule for our new musical “Times Square.”<br /><br /> We’ll be closing out our year as artists-in-residence at the Met with one more cabaret in mid-May. Taking its title — “The Way They Live” — from Thomas Anschutz’s painting, the original play with music will explore concepts of America and how American art reflects those ideas.

Live at The Met Museum: Curators and the Objects They Love
<itunes:summary>On this special podcast, we're back inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, investigating within the halls and installations of this iconic museum.<br /><br />Focusing on beauty, sex, love, and the body for this Let Me Ascertain You episode, we asked the curators to speak on these topics in relation to the artworks and share the compelling histories behind them. This past September, we turned their interviews into monologues and songs, which we then performed in the Petrie Court Cafe at the Museum itself.<br /><br />First up, we have David Cale performing an interview we did with Luke, a curator of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts. Then, Daniel Jenkins performs our interview with James, another curator of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts. And finally, Michael Friedman performs an original song that he wrote and performed called “Like a Virgin” based on an interview with Melanie, a curator of Medieval Art.<br /><br />This marked the first of three performances we'll have throughout our Met residency.

Live at The Met Museum: The Civilians Tackle The Other Hollywood
<itunes:summary>What you’re about to hear has been workshopped and presented at The Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of The Civilians' artist residency. The performances come from interviews we did during our investigation for our upcoming musical, “Pretty Filthy,” about the ‘Other Hollywood’ in the San Fernando Valley...porn capital of the world. We went behind-the-scenes and interviewed countless directors, porn stars, agents and beyond. “Pretty Filthy” goes up at Abrons Arts Center on the Lower East Side in New York City on Jan. 31st. Here’s a look at some of the interviews that didn't make it into that musical but were too good not to share. <br /><br /> First we have Damian Baldet as a famous porn director, Keith. Then, Jeanine Serralles performs the legendary porn star Ginger Lynn and Jennifer Morris performs porn star Tabitha Stephens. To close, Heidi Blickenstaff performs an original song written by Michael Friedman that will appear in "Pretty Filthy," called ‘Beautiful.’ <br /><br /> Learn more about The Civilians' “Pretty Filthy” and get tickets here: http://www.prettyfilthymusical.com <br /><br /> If you haven’t already, subscribe on iTunes to Let Me Ascertain You to find our other podcasts and be the first to hear new ones coming down the pike.</itunes:summary> <enclosure type="audio/mpeg" url="http://feeds.soundcloud.com/stream/188805375-thecivilians-live-at-the-met-museum-the-other-hollywood.mp3" length="16231970"/> <itunes:image href="http://i1.sndcdn.com/artworks-000105175699-1a3i5k-original.jpg"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/cki_t2n3zOA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

F*ing & Dying: Love/Sex/Reproduction
<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><br /><itunes:summary>Welcome to the final episode of our Let Me Ascertain You series on sex and death. According to Freud, the death drive is the drive towards self-destruction and the return to the "inorganic." Eros on the other hand is the drive to create and be productive. This episode explores these often competing drives. First up we have the original song “We Could Always Try Counting Sheep!” written and performed by Andrea Grody based on an interview about “sexomina.” Then Cindy Cheung performs an interview we did with Doan about sex and love addiction. And to close this episode out we have César Alvarez performing a lullaby he wrote for his daughter called “The Year of Dying.” We want to thank all of the interviewees, and the actors and composers who worked very hard to bring these stories to life. Many thanks to the Civilians' team of interviewers: Quinlan Corbett, Ian Daniel, Amina Henry, Michelle Jalowski, Leicester Landon, Gina Ratton, and Benjamin Viertel. Michael Liebenluft was our project director, and the live show was directed by Mia Rovegno. </itunes:summary></item></channel></rss><br /><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><itunes:summary><br /></itunes:summary><br /><br /></item></channel></rss><br /><div class="detail"></div></div><strong><span style="font-size: large;">For more, please visit <link></link>http://www.thecivilians.org.</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;">To leave a comment, please visit The Civilians' blog&nbsp;</span></strong><a href="http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: inherit; font-size: large;"><b>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/</b></span></a><strong><span style="font-size: large;">!</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;"></span></strong><br /><itunes:image href="http://www.thecivilians.org/images/lmay_red_logo.jpg"><br /><enclosure length="10800333" type="audio/mpeg" url="http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mp3/sex_death_part4.mp3"><br /><br /><br /></enclosure></itunes:image><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/5LnJrM_xPlQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

In this episode we are leaning towards the sex side of the sex and death equation, looking at those elements of life that in one context might seem unpleasant or downright awful, but in another context can be well, kind of sexy. First, Dan Domingues performs an interview we did with Peter, a man who recounts how bondage became a path to self-discovery, and then Rebecca Hart performs Emily, a woman who dated a sometimes hit-man who taught her her how to strangle people without leaving any marks. To close out this episode we have special guest Adam Cochran accompanying himself on guitar with a song by writing team Erato Kremmyda and Maggie-Kate Coleman. Erato and Maggie-Kate are both members in our R & D Group for writers, directors and composers. “I Don’t Want To Know Your Name” is based on interviews about “terror and catastrophe sex,” a phenomenon where cataclysmic events drive you into the bed of a stranger.

This first podcast in the series focuses on death as the ultimate turn-on. To start us off, we have Stephen Plunkett performing a monologue from an interview we did with famed porn director Craven Moorehead. Then we have Sam Breslin Wright performing an interview with Johannes, an Austrian who runs an arts/technology festival that buries people alive, aptly named, “The Six Feet Under Club.” Following that, cabaret superstar Lady Rizo performs her original song “Under” which she wrote with Yair Evnine. This song is based on our interview with Kitty, a “Six Feet Under Club” participant who got buried alive with her lover. </itunes:summary></item></channel></rss><br /><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><itunes:summary><br /></itunes:summary><br /><br /></item></channel></rss><br /><div class="detail"></div></div><strong><span style="font-size: large;">For more, please visit <link></link>http://www.thecivilians.org.</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;">To leave a comment, please visit The Civilians' blog&nbsp;</span></strong><a href="http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: inherit; font-size: large;"><b>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/</b></span></a><strong><span style="font-size: large;">!</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;"></span></strong><br /><itunes:image href="http://www.thecivilians.org/images/lmay_red_logo.jpg"><br /><enclosure length="10800333" type="audio/mpeg" url="http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mp3/sex_death_part1.mp3"><br /><br /><br /></enclosure></itunes:image><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/cQV6An_lPtc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

We set some of these personal histories to song and brought others to life with monologues performed at Joe’s Pub in NYC. To kick us off, we’ll start with a song written and performed by Max Vernon taking inspiration from the case study of Moses I. And the little intro you’ll hear is taken from Dr. Henry’s own words, performed by Trey Lyford. Also featured, actor Nedra McClyde performing the case study of Myrtle K, a vaudeville comedian. After that, we’ll wrap things up with a sea shanty, “Odd Girl Out” written by Jill Sobule, inspired by Roberta H., and performed by Marykate O’Neil.

Recorded live at Joe’s Pub in New York City, this show takes its inspiration from the medical book Sex Variants: A study of Homosexual Patterns by Dr. George W. Henry. For each of his case studies, Dr. Henry recorded a detailed and intimate personal history, and we are sharing some of these with you now through performances by actors and in original songs. In between, you will sometimes hear Dr. Henry’s own introductions to these case studies; those bits are performed by actor Trey Lyford. Our first piece is a song by the writing team of Erato Kremmyda and Maggie-Kate Coleman. Cyrilla Baer interprets the words of Rowena K. Following that is Rudolph Von H, a monologue performed by David Cale. And to close the third episode, we have a song by Michael Freidman inspired by the case study of Sydney H. Michael’s song is performed here by Dito Van Riegersberg accompanied on the piano by Nathan Dames. </itunes:summary></item></channel></rss><br /><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><itunes:summary><br /></itunes:summary><br /><br /></item></channel></rss><br /><div class="detail"></div></div><strong><span style="font-size: large;">For more, please visit <link></link>http://www.thecivilians.org.</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;">To leave a comment, please visit The Civilians' blog&nbsp;</span></strong><a href="http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: inherit; font-size: large;"><b>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/</b></span></a><strong><span style="font-size: large;">!</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;"></span></strong><br /><itunes:image href="http://www.thecivilians.org/images/lmay_red_logo.jpg"><br /><enclosure length="10800333" type="audio/mpeg" url="http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mp3/sex_variants_part3.mp3"><br /><br /><br /></enclosure></itunes:image><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/QxZAFMhmF74" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

We’re back with the second episode of Let Me Ascertain You: Sex Variants 1941 recorded live here in NYC at Joe’s Pub. This series takes its inspiration from a 1941 medical book by Dr. George W. Henry. Subtitled "A Study of Homosexual Pattern," Dr. Henry classified these case studies as homosexuals, bi-sexuals, or narcissists. A little something for everyone. In this episode we’ll start off with the case study of Irene K., played at our live show by Kate Buddeke. The evening’s MC Trey Lyford will first give us a little intro to Irene K., and his words are taken verbatim from Dr. Henry’s "general impressions" of the variant in question. Then you’ll hear "That Crazy Business" a song written by Andrea Grody about the case study Nora M. performed by Jessie Shelton and Nathan Dame. The last two performances are based on the same patient, Donald H. First actor Dan Domingues performs Donald’s own words from his personal history and we’ll follow that with a song, "The Future Looks Very Fine," written by Cesar Alvarez, and performed here by Cesar and the rest of his band The Lisps which are Sammy Tunis, Eric Farber, and Lorenzo Wolff. </itunes:summary></item></channel></rss><br /><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><itunes:summary><br /></itunes:summary><br /><br /></item></channel></rss><br /><div class="detail"></div></div><strong><span style="font-size: large;">For more, please visit <link></link>http://www.thecivilians.org.</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;">To leave a comment, please visit The Civilians' blog&nbsp;</span></strong><a href="http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: inherit; font-size: large;"><b>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/</b></span></a><strong><span style="font-size: large;">!</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;"></span></strong><br /><itunes:image href="http://www.thecivilians.org/images/lmay_red_logo.jpg"><br /><enclosure length="10800333" type="audio/mpeg" url="http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mp3/sex_variants_part2.mp3"><br /><br /><br /></enclosure></itunes:image><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/DPxhsawWcgQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><br /><itunes:summary>We’re kicking off a new series here at Let Me Ascertain You. These podcasts are taken from our live shows performed at Joe's Pub here in New York City, and our most recent show was called Sex Variants 1941. As you may know, our shows are typically inspired by interviews we do ourselves but for this one we are borrowing our inspiration from a medical study entitled Sex Variants: a study of homosexual patterns. The book is a collection of case studies conducted by Dr. George W. Henry of Cornell University. Dr. Henry interviewed over 200 people about the sex lives, their childhoods, their family history - pretty much no stone was left unturned. There are also some really amazing drawings of the subjects’ genitalia, though only those of the female subjects. It’s unclear as to why that is exactly. We are bringing it all back to life in this podcast series. Dr. Henry provided his written analysis of each case study, starting off with his general impressions. So throughout this series you’ll hear actor Trey Lyford quoting from Dr. Henry’s impressions. Starting off here with his thoughts on Molly N, followed by a performance of her personal history by the actor Nina Hellman. After Nina, you’ll hear Molly N.’s words turned into song by Grace McLean in her song "(not) Normal." Then, Brandon Miller performs an excerpt from the case study of Louis E. And we’ll wrap up with a song written by Tim Acito inspired by Noel W. The song which is titled "I Have Had the Earth" is sung by Brandon Davidson accompanied by Tim.

<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><br /><itunes:summary>This is our fourth and final episode of “Let Me Ascertain You: Holy Matrimony” from our investigations into American Weddings. In celebration of the defeat of DOMA in the Supreme Court this past summer we decided to poke around in the grand old institution of marriage and then as we do with each of our Let Me Ascertain You shows, we have actors perform these verbatim interviews in front of a live audience. This show took place in our home away from home, Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater. We’ll start things off with a couple here in NYC who celebrated their 25th anniversary by traveling across the country to get married in every state that currently recognizes legal gay marriage. Here are actors Greg McFadden and Brad Heberlee playing Stephen and Pat. Then, Susannah Flood plays Caragh, a designer from Australia and Daoud Heidami plays Paul, from the town Normal, Illinois. We did these interviews separately and then edited them together, so Paul and Caragh can tell you their story together. Our final song of the series is based off of an interview with Brian, manager of the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel who stars in all of their themed weddings from Elvis to Darth Vader to Fat Bastard. “In Vegas” was written by Erato A. Kremmyda, with lyrics by Maggie-Kate Coleman. Erato and Maggie-Kate are both currently members in our R & D Group this year working on a new show of theirs and we’re glad they lent us their talents for this Vegas extravaganza. “In Vegas” is performed here by Brian Charles Rooney, Annalisa Ledson and Christine Perotta, accompanied by Erato Kremmyda. Interviews for this podcast were conducted by Joel Glassman and Talya Klein and many thanks to everyone involved in this project and our project contributors Darien Battle, Nora Sørena Casey, Molly Coogan, Ian Daniel, Meredith Domalakes, Gibson Frazier, Joel Glassman, Donnetta Grays, Laura Hedli, Amina Henry, Michelle Jalowski, Alexandra Keegan, Talya Klein, Leicester Landon, Calane Schafer, Jessica Watkins and Colleen Werthmann.

Our crew of artists talked to real-life couples as well as the people in the amazing and strange world of the wedding industry. And all these interviews were performed live by actors at Joe’s Pub in our hometown of New York City. Our first piece is a little bit of a twist: one of our Associate Artists Donnetta Lavinia Grays interviewed and will play here, her very own wife, Shalema. Then, we’re off to New Jersey as Brian Sgambati and Emily Rossell portray the couple Dominick and Rachel. And for this episode’s song, we have something written by composer Andrea Grody inspired by an interview we did with a high-end wedding dress saleswoman in Chicago. "Best Dressed" is performed live by the vivacious and talented Miss Emily Rossell, with Michael Friedman on piano.

For this series we did a deep dive into the wonderful world of weddings in America. Or maybe more like a face plant into a three tiered wedding cake. So with icing on our faces and hangover from too much cheap wine… here are a few more interviews performed by actors live at Joe’s Pub in New York City. In this episode, we’re going from Minnesota to the Mississippi Delta and then we’re going off the grid to a Hippy wedding on the land. Greg McFadden and Colleen Werthmann perform Minnesota high school sweethearts Randy & Diane. Emily Ackerman plays Amy, from the Mississippi Delta who is something of an expert on marriage, though as you’ll hear largely through trial and error. And to wrap things up the very talented actor singer and songwriter Rebecca Hart wrote a song “Bad Hippy Wedding” based on an interview we did. Thanks for listening.

With DOMA getting taken down by the Supreme Court this past summer and with marriage equality spreading state by state, we thought it was a good time to look in our own Civiliansy way at that very special occasion – the wedding. For the past few months, our intrepid team of interviewers gathered stories from all over America for glimpses into weddings in a Vegas Wedding Chapel, a Courthouse in Louisiana, and even a Taco Bell in Normal, Illinois. Everything was recorded live at Joe’s Pub here in New York City. We start this first podcast episode with a couple from own home turf, Brooklyn: Becca and Jon, portrayed by Jess Watkins and Trey Lyford. Then, Nedra McClyde plays Ashley, a bride in Michigan who gets into all the details about her wedding night (you might want to send the kids outside to play during that one). To close things out, we’ve got a song by Michael Friedman. This is “Little Match Girl,” a song that has nothing to do with Hans Christian Andersen. This one’s taken from an interview we did with supposedly the number one matchmaker to the rich and powerful here in New York. Interviews for this podcast were conducted by Amina Henry and Talya Klein .

These interviews are part of an ongoing investigation about death, dying and whatever comes after that. We talked to more than a hundred people so far, and many of these conversations centered on how we remember and how we memorialize those that we’ve lost. Maybe you’ve passed an entirely white bike chained up somewhere and wondered what it was. And maybe you guessed that it’s a memorial for a cyclist killed in that location. We talked to Jessie, one of the people who makes these public memorials. She’s one of the co-founders of the New York City Ghost Bike Project, performed here by actor Megan Stern. Jessie connected us to Lizi, a mother whose son was killed on his bike in Queens, performed by Indika Senanayake. And as our final piece in this series about endings, we have an actor performing an interview we did with another actor. To close, Brad Heberlee plays Everett.

As part of this investigation, our team spoke to those who work every day in matters of life and death — people who spend their days in the places that witness the demise of our bodies. We’ve put three of those stories together for this episode. To kick things off, here’s actor Peter Friedman performing a man named Leonard: he’s a doctor of internal medicine. Then Danielle Davenport performs an interview we did with Sara, a child life specialist in the general pediatric unit at NYU Hospital. Keith Randolph Smith closes out this episode with his performance of Rocky, who is the co-founder of The Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps, which it turns out is the nation’s first minority-run volunteer ambulance corps. Since 1988 the Bed-Stuy ambulance corps greatly improved emergency care in the Bed-Stuy community and to this day it continues to train young people and adults in life-saving skills.

<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><br /><itunes:summary>We’re back with the second episode of Let Me Ascertain You: Be The Death of Me. For this Civilians' project we took a prismatic look into the end of life and talked with a cross-section of New Yorkers - ER nurses, priests, funeral directors, vampires, shamans, crime-scene cleaners, and many ordinary people dealing with the extraordinary experience of loss. In this episode we share three of those stories. Actors Gardiner Comfort, Jennifer Morris, and Jeremy Shamos perform. The interviews for this podcast episode were conducted by Matt Dellapina, Meridith Friedman, and Donnetta Lavinia Grays. We encourage you to subscribe if you haven’t already, and if you’re feeling extra generous write us a review. It makes a big difference!

<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><br /><itunes:summary>We’re starting up a new series here at Let Me Ascertain You taken from a couple of live events we did recently about death. The show called “Be The Death of Me” is about facing that final curtain and maybe what lies on the other side. A small army of artists spent six months interviewing all sorts of people here in New York City. A cast of 33 brilliant actors performed these pieces at the Irondale Center in our home neighborhood of Fort Greene Brooklyn. And over the next few episodes, we’re going to share some of these stories with you. Most people, it stands to reason, have some fear of dying - but not everyone does. As you’ll hear in this episode, some are planning on doing what no man or woman has done before: escape it altogether. Stephen Plunkett performs Father Sebastiaan, a local vampyre and fangsmith. Mia Katigbak performs an interview we did with a medium named Therese. Matt Dellapina performs our interview with Futurist/Techno-Philospher Gray Scott. Interviews for this podcast were conducted by EllaRose Chary, Ian Daniel, and Leonie Ettinger.

For this episode, we've got another interview from a staffer at the Rainbow Heights Club in Brooklyn, an advocacy program for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender emotional recovery and wellness. You can learn more about them at rainbowheights.org. Samira Wiley performs Danee live in New York City at the Barrow Street Theater. Then, our next performance comes from an interview we did a couple years ago as part of our research for writer Neal Bell's play, SHADOW OF HIMSELF. Actors Matt Maher, Brian Sgambati and Maria Dizzia drove down to rural Pennsylvania to visit Harold and Bob in their home that has number of cages upstairs, locked cells downstairs and something of a small prison camp outside. At the time they were all empty. Matt Maher plays Harold and Brad Heberlee plays Bob. Since we started this LGBTQ series, we did a concert of the show TIMES SQUARE by Jill Sobule & Robin Eaton and Jim Lewis. It's a show about two girls who fall in love and discover themselves. To close out the podcast, we share a song for Nicky, one of the two girls at the center of the story. Nicky's a streetwise butch girl and in this song "Cigarette Burn" she's trying out a new song onstage at the Pussycat Palace in the heart of sleazy Times Square. It's sung here by the extraordinary Jill Sobule. Interviews for this podcast were conducted by Donnetta Lavinia Grays and Matt Maher. </itunes:summary></item></channel></rss><br /><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><itunes:summary><br /></itunes:summary><br /><br /></item></channel></rss><br /><div class="detail"></div></div><strong><span style="font-size: large;">For more, please visit <link></link>http://www.thecivilians.org.</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;">To leave a comment, please visit The Civilians' blog&nbsp;</span></strong><a href="http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: inherit; font-size: large;"><b>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/</b></span></a><strong><span style="font-size: large;">!</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;"></span></strong><br /><itunes:image href="http://www.thecivilians.org/images/lmay_red_logo.jpg"><br /><enclosure length="10800333" type="audio/mpeg" url="http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mp3/lgbtq_part3.mp3"><br /><br /><br /></enclosure></itunes:image><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/OHg6fKnzV-Y" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

This week, we're heading into the General Population at El Buen Pastor to give you an intimate look into these women’s daily lives and their preparation for the pageant. This material was performed and recorded live at 92YTribeca in NY. First up is Ana Lamadrid performing an inmate, followed by our Associate Artist Jenny Morris as a Canadian prisoner. Matt Dellapina performs an interview with Mauricio, a pastor who works with the inmates, and the episode closes out with Flor De Liz Perez as the Queen Mother of Cell Block 9. Interviews for this were conducted by Alejandro Jaramillo Hoyos, Lorena Lopez, and Adriana Osorio. The performances you just heard were directed by Steven Cosson.

Steve Cosson spent a month visiting the prison during the lead up to the pageant, working with a group of Colombians, playwright Jos&eacute; Rivera, and songwriter/musician Hector Buitrago of the Latin Grammy award winning band Aterciopelados. They interviewed the pageant's contestants, other inmates, and prison staff. In this podcast, you’ll get a chance to hear some of our raw interviews, which were translated into English and performed for the first time at the 92YTribeca in June of this year. Our first interview, performed by Vanessa Aspillaga, is with a woman serving time for being part of one of the various guerilla groups who are part of a long-standing armed conflict with right-wing paramilitaries. Next up is Carolina Ravassa playing an inmate who is incarcerated for her part in an attack on the presidential palace in Bogot&aacute; in 2002. The attack didn’t succeed in hitting then President Alvaro Uribe, though one missile overshot the palace and landed in the nearby neighborhood of El Cartucho, killing a number of people. To close this episode, our Associate Artist KJ Sanchez performs an inmate who, while she proclaims her innocence, was convicted of working for the paramilitaries through her political office. These interviews were conducted by Lorena Lopez and Alejandro Jaramillo.

You Better Sit Down: Salon Night Episode 1
<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><br /><itunes:summary>You Better Sit Down: Tales from My Parents' Divorce recently had its world premiere at The Flea Theater in New York. The play consisted of four actors playing their parents in verbatim conversations each actor had with his or her parent or parents about the parents' divorces. Following the performances, the company presented a series of Salon Nights, in which artists created new monologues or songs from audience responses, online comments, and interviews. This episode features some of that material. First up, is a new monologue by New Yorker scribe Michael Schulman, performed by Michael and his sister Alyssa Schulman, for which he interviewed their grandmother about a divorce that they didn't know that she had. Then Kamara Thomas sings a song called "Onions" that she wrote about a break-up. Lastly, Jason Grote (one of our R&D Group writers and a staff writer on Smash) and his writing partner Marisa Michelson present an original song crafted from online responses performed by Marisa. </itunes:summary></item></channel></rss><br /><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><itunes:summary><br /></itunes:summary><br /><br /></item></channel></rss><br /><div class="detail"></div><iframe frameborder="0" height="50" scrolling="no" src="http://www.thecivilians.org/_audio/divorce_episode1.html" width="435"></iframe></div><strong><span style="font-size: large;">For more, please visit <link></link>http://www.thecivilians.org.</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;">To leave a comment, please visit The Civilians' blog&nbsp;</span></strong><a href="http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: inherit; font-size: large;"><b>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/</b></span></a><strong><span style="font-size: large;">!</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;"></span></strong><br /><itunes:image href="http://www.thecivilians.org/images/lmay_red_logo.jpg"><br /><enclosure length="10800333" type="audio/mpeg" url="http://www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mp3/divorce_episode1.mp3"><br /><br /><br /></enclosure></itunes:image><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/Hatu_gpxFFs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Mr. Burns: Behind the Scenes
<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><br /><itunes:summary>Anne Wasburn's new play is currently receiving its world premiere at Woolly Mammoth Theater Company in Washington, DC. In the show, Armageddon has struck and the electric grid has gone down permanently. For one group of tenacious survivors, sitting around a fire and reminiscing about The Simpsons proves to be the greatest escape from despair. Almost all of the episode recollection that the characters do in the first act is from a Civilians workshop in 2008, in which a group of Associate Artists led by Anne Washburn and Steve Cosson attempted to recreate the Cape Feare episode of The Simpsons from memory. This episode features some of the hilarious audio taken during that workshop. This episode also has an interview with playwright Anne Washburn, who discusses the role of the workshop in her creative process and her interest in this subject matter. Matt Maher, an actor in the original workshop and a Simpsons savant, then speaks about the exercises in the workshop and even tells us about his personal favorite Simpsons moments. Composer Michael Friedman talks about the music in the play and shares an excerpt of his post-Apocalyptic score of jumbled pop hits, as well as some of the music from the third act in which The Simpsons have spawned a whole new mythology and entertainment. <br /></itunes:summary></item></channel></rss><br /><rss version="2.0" xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/thecivilianspodcast.dtd"><channel><item><itunes:summary><br /></itunes:summary><br /><br /></item></channel></rss><br /><div class="detail"></div><iframe frameborder="0" height="50" scrolling="no" src="http://www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mr_burns.html" width="435"></iframe></div><strong><span style="font-size: large;">For more, please visit <link></link>http://www.thecivilians.org.</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;">To leave a comment, please visit The Civilians' blog&nbsp;</span></strong><a href="http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: inherit; font-size: large;"><b>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/</b></span></a><strong><span style="font-size: large;">!</span></strong><br /><strong><span style="font-size: large;"></span></strong><br /><itunes:image href="http://www.thecivilians.org/images/lmay_red_logo.jpg"><br /><enclosure length="10800333" type="audio/mpeg" url="http://www.thecivilians.org/_audio/mp3/mr_burns.mp3"><br /><br /><br /></enclosure></itunes:image>http://blogforthecivilians.blogspot.com/2012/06/mr-burns-podcast.html<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCiviliansPodcast/~4/P0chqZoiMUE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
