What It Is
A group of friends talk about issues related to community theater.
This show hasn’t released a new episode since August of last year. Prior to that, you’d get one to two episodes a month typically. Episodes average to around half an hour. iTunes has, oddly, the 99 most recent episodes. For more, check out the website.
What About It
So, I’m in community theater quite a bit. And even I didn’t particular enjoy this show or find it interesting. A lot of the show is related to technical issues or behind the scenes stuff, of course, and some of it is kind of interesting, just because I know what they’re talking about. However, the show is also quite sedate and can be really dull; sometimes the three main hosts have guests on and, for some reason , the guests are usually incredibly monotone and dull. The show is well produced and the hosts are likable enough. But even for a theater guy, this one’s pretty lackluster.

Best Entry Point
Eh. I think the most interesting discussion they had was in an episode called How to Save Your Theatre, Part 1. The discussion revolves around whether or not Shakespeare is accessible to modern audiences. It’s an interesting discussion. I have an opinion on the issue, but I’ll spare you.
