In this Episode:
Writer/Performer/Awesome Person Shelton Pritchard Lindsay talks about the power of performance, and its role in facilitating conversations, reaching across political party lines and uniting the entire world. Sometimes.
Then, Katharine plays a very special audio clip from a very special person (her boyfriend)’s recent graduation speech about being an artist in a capitalist society.
Also, see Katharine perform with the New York Neo-Futurists! Her first run with the company in The Infinite Wrench is happening now every weekend until June 10th! Not able to make it then? It’s ok – the show is year round so you should see it anyway because it is amazing.
