Hello theatre people! In episode 3, “Old Works, Different Takes, and New Lives”, we will be exploring why we choose to re-tell, re-envision, or re-invent certain stories and what makes them worth the reboot.
It’s an all too familiar phenomenon in films where they’re often literally re-made. But it’s different in theatre, and how it’s different is pretty interesting.
We’ll hear from playwright Dan Dietz, and director Derek Goldman from Forum Theatre’s production of Clementine in the Lower 9 on the subject. We’ll also hear from a local artist about their ideas of what the contemporary theatre’s version of the reboot means.
And we’d love to hear from you too! Send us your questions and thoughts on the topic to LightsUpPodcast@gmail.com and it might be featured on the show! For more details about that check out this post on submitting your questions and comments.

Thanks and stay well!
