More news from Ilana on the Huntington Playwriting Fellows:

Hello All,

It's already a busy month for updates, and it's only the second week of October!

I wanted to let you know about a few exciting programs on NPR. LA Theatre Works is theatre company that records plays for radio broadcast, often with all-star casts. Here in Boston, we only get broadcasts once a month on WGBH, and it's difficult to track down the schedule for what they're going to air. Luckily, KPCC (Southern California Public Radio) airs programs from LA Theatre Works every week and online, and they now have a podcast you can subscribe to. So, why am I telling you this?

On October 20, LA Theatre Works/KPCC will begin broadcasting their production of Melinda Lopez's "Sonia Flew," which was recorded in the spring, starring Hector Elizando (photo on right) and Elizabeth Pena. You can get the podcast by subscribing here:http://www.scpr.org/programs/latw/podcast.php

Or you can listen online using RealAudio, between Oct 20 and Oct 26, here: http://www.scpr.org/programs/latw/

Shows are usually only available for a week, even via iTunes, so if you want to hear it, it's wise to subscribe and downlo
ad in order to save it for later.

In mid-November, LA Theatre Works will record their production of Lydia Diamond's "Stick Fly," starring Dule Hill and Justine Bateman. They haven't set a broadcast date yet, but I expect it will be a few months. When I find out, I will let everyone know. http://www.latw.org/live/detail.aspx?title=Stick%20Fly

But wait, there's more!
If you haven't caught it already, some Huntington faves have been making appearances on WBUR's Weekend Edition Sunday for the last several months. Will LeBow, John Kuntz, and Melinda Lopez are cast members of "11 Central Ave," a weekly radio comic strip. (Don't ask me what a radio comic strip is, I haven't really figured that out yet. But it's nice to hear these folks on the air every week!) Here's the website: http://www.11centralave.org/Home.html
You can also subscribe to the podcast via iTunes.

Best to all,

Thanks for the plug Llana! I just interviewed Melinda for the "Sonia Flew" broadcast. If folks go to our website,latw.org, they can see the schedule for up coming broadcasts and the stations that air "The Play's The Thing." And every week you can hear the plays on kpcc.org and if you have X-M satellite radio you can hear the plays three times weekly on their Sonic Theater Channel.
