Episode 3: Eileen Tull
My guest this week is Eileen Tull, comedian, writer, solo performer, and producer of amazing feminist work in Chicago. I spoke with Eileen after I saw her latest one-woman show Bad Dates, Or What Killed That Monkey In Indiana Jones Will Only Make You Stronger. She talked about some of her favorite spaces for women in Chicago. She also opened up about her biggest fears (it’s not being naked on stage–she’s done that) and how real vulnerability seems to be in short supply these days. She’s also got some top-notch advice for aspiring artists, especially those looking to work outside the mold of traditional theatre.
Episode 2: Adia Alli
This week I spoke with actress and stage manager Adia Alli about working in Chicago, representation in the theater and the kinds of shows she loves to see. Adia recently stage managed The Hairy Ape at Oracle Theatre and is currently understudying for Kristiana Rae Colon’s Good Friday.
