The Geek Theater Movement With Playwright Crystal Skillman

Download The MP3 Here

New York Playwright Crystal Skillman is back! She and her husband comics writer Fred Van Lente wowed audiences and critics last year with the off-broadway debut of KING KIRBY, the biographical look at Jack Kirby's life.

Skillman brings her new play, ANOTHER KIND OF LOVE to Chicago's INFusion Theater company with a month long run at The Chopin Theater 1543 W Division.

We talk about the play featuring a grunge rock family group of women reuniting their band for a festival that celebrates the music of their Punk Rock Mother . I'm in  the play as the radio host Crash Murphy, whose festival news bulitens keep the real world moving along as the sisters work out old family issues.

We talk about the play, get a KING KIRBY update,  and the curent Geek Theater movement
