    Esther's Follies

    You don't have to slog your way through Dirty Sixth anymore, citizen – you can catch the arch antics and musical mayhem of the Esther's crew on video as they unleash fresh new sketches and songs and more about the hottest topics of the day. And there's all sorts of behind-the-scenes extras now, too, and it's all available via their Patreon page. You need to laugh right about now, so this is a good idea, right? And sports are important, sure they are, but wouldn't you rather be a local comedy supporter than a local athletic supporter? [*pauses for response, hears only crickets*] Right – leaving it to these professionals, then.

    The Spin

    Street Corner Arts presents a livestreamed production of this new dark comedy produced specifically for the virtual medium. Listen: "When the Public Works Director of a major city confesses to a horrible crime, a team of spin doctors are brought in at the last possible second to pull off a tough assignment: prepare the Mayor’s top aide for a crucial news interview mid-pandemic, distance City Hall from the controversy, and point the public’s attention elsewhere. And do it entirely over video-conferencing." Spenser Davis wrote and directs this modern thriller that's expertly embodied by Zac Carr, Michael Galvan, Carlo Lorenzo Garcia, Natalie Garcia, Jason Graf, Kelsey Mazak, Mike Ooi, Shariba Rivers, and Andrea Skola Summers – with realtime screen management by Morgan Brochu. And, look: Here's a trailer for the show!
