And now, for my next trick, I’ll write about theater for WBUR’s The ARTery. I’m a multi-pronged freelancing threat over here.
I guess interviewing the playwright Molly Smith Metzler about the Boston Playwright Theater’s new production of her play Elemeno Pea isn’t a huge stretch for me; she served as the executive story editor for this year’s season of Orange is the New Black, so there’s common ground right there. But theater is a different beast from TV and from film, so the piece presented a nice opportunity for stretching myself, so to speak. (And the play is pretty good, or at least the script is!)
