PRE: People at 'Southern Comfort'

Q: What was it about this show that made you want to come see it?

A: (right) I’m an actor, we both are, and I worked at Barrington Stage which did a workshop of it. It’s been on my radar for a while. I’ve actually never seen the production, but I’ve been hearing about it for years and I would love to see a fully realized version. 

A: (left) I read about it in an article a few months ago and didn’t realize it was coming to The Public. It was an article about more prominence of LGBT in mainstream theater and the subject matter sounded really interesting. The cast who had done it before—I think most of them are in it today—it sounded like a really good cast. I also just always love coming to see stuff at The Public. 

Q: Why is that?

A: (right) We were just talking about that over dinner. 

A: (left) I feel like it is diverse. Also you come here and it feels like a hub for anyone who likes to see theater or art. There is always something relatable or something interesting and a little different.

A: (right) They take chances on weird stuff. Stuff that everybody doesn’t always like. I saw First Daughter Suite most recently and loved it. It was one of those things where I was watching it and I could see how some people would be like: what is this? But I was so on board. I loved every second of it.
