WITH RACHEL AUSTIN, WILLIE JOHNSON, FLORENCE BRAMMER, AND MODERATION BY WENDY KNOX
We’ve just marked a year since Frank produced its last show, THE CONVERT which played at Gremlin Theatre Feb 20-Mar 13, 2020. So now, this intermission from Frank has been a full year.
As people are beginning to tentatively look with hope to the fall for the return of theatre, as possibly predicted by Dr. Fauci, we asked some avid theatre enthusiasts what it would take for them to feel comfortable returning to the theatre. What about you? Are you ready to walk into a theatre with a bunch of strangers and see a live show? What holds you back and what encourages you?
Join us for a discussion with Rachel Austin, Willie Johnson, & Florence Brammer, moderated by Wendy Knox.
The public is invited to participate in a Q&A following the discussion on Facebook Live.
FRANKLY SPEAKING: What’s Up With That?
will be on Facebook Live monthly with discussions between theatre artists about the critical issues facing the arts, culture, and society. Like Frank’s Facebook page

when we’re going live! FRANKLY SPEAKING episodes will be available after the live air date on Facebook, Vimeo, and the Frank Theatre website.
Part of Frank Theatre’s mission is to create work that “explores ideas and issues of social, political and/or cultural concern.” Although that mission cannot be accomplished on the stage during COVID, Frank Theatre believes in the importance of continuing to have conversations that question the world we live in. Taking the moniker from Frank’s regular newsletter, “FRANKLY SPEAKING: What’s Up With That?” invites the public to join in an exploration of the kinds of questions that drive and inform the work that Frank typically puts on stage.
