Yes, it has been a long year without a podcast primarily because COVID-19 has forced everyone and everything to make changes in the ways things used to be done. For some of us, it has been a personal challenge like you would not believe, and for others making some of those changes came easy. In any case, I am back. At least monthly, until I can get the rest of my life on track. I have missed talking to people about their work, and I honestly missed sharing it all with you.

COVID-19 took the wind out of the sails for many people and institutions, and theater is not an exception. LatinX Actor, Perry Ojeda, has joined the virtual theater game in a production of Wendy MacLeod’s SLOW FOOD, presented by the International City Theatre, directed by Marya Mazor. It also stars Stu James, Perry Ojeda, and Meredith Thomas, with Costume Design by Kim DeShazo, Sound Design by Dave Mickey, Props by Patty Briles, and Video Editor Mike Bradecich.
SLOW FOOD is a complicated tale of what is considered good service. It is also the next step of creating theater. Necessity is the mother of invention, and this play represents the magic of reimagining a genre. Enjoy my conversation with Perry Ojeda about his life, career, and trying to make theater pop in the new normal.
