RBG, Our Torchbearer by Marsha Glazière (2019)

Personifying RBG as the Statue of Liberty, which depicts Libertas, the Roman goddess of liberty, made perfect sense to me as a way of honoring the essential values of integrity and liberty for all that Ruth Bader Ginsburg embodied and fought for.

The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye

The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye

Eight virtual performances Oct. 16 – Nov. 1 In a funny and satirical homage to the great radio plays that were a staple of entertainment through the mid-20th century, Theatre Jacksonville will be streaming this show online for your listening pleasure at specific performance times.  Instead of heading into the playhouse, you can gather around your laptop, tablet, phone, or other internet device and have a listen to what would have been the family radio in the living room from days gone by. The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye is a parody of the hard-boiled detective genre. Just think The Maltese Falcon but this time with a lot of laughs. The story involves stereotypical film noir situations, including mistaken identity, betrayal, a good guy detective, evil bad guys, and dangerous dames. Nothing is left uncovered as our talented voice actors spoof the conventions of those old detective radio shows, right down to the studio sound effects, the sponsors, the on-air host, the convoluted plots, and just about anything else that one might have heard on a classic serial. The talented cast includes Jas Abromowitz, Cathy O’Brien, Rich Pintello, Ron Shreve, David Allen Thomas, and Curtis Williams, who also serves as the director. This show is included for current All-Access Season Members. Members can reserve your online tickets, nonmembers can purchase tickets, and all can view the show at www.theatrejax.com.  ...
