Inside The Green Room With Queer Performers: The Results

As someone who has performed in Theatre, Film, & The Queer Performance Scene, I have a lot of varied experience; Good, Bad, Annoying, and the like. But, I realized how privileged I was to have access to wonderful opportunities, press, contacts, etc and I was curious to know about the experience of others in similar…

Inside The Green Room With Nik Hampshire

Sebastian Cummings The internet allows us the opportunity to come across people we might otherwise have never known. Living in a little, big city like Philadelphia, it’s easy to cross paths with what feels like every artist in town, and then there’s the occasional person who seems to know everyone you know, frequent places you…

Inside The Green Room With Theo Langason

Sebastian Cummings Last night I called my sister. We haven’t been speaking very much lately, for a number of reasons. I called her because I realized, I’m not good at relationships. I don’t know how to have a proper relationship with anyone, not even my siblings. I try. But, I don’t know what I’m doing….

Inside The Green Room With Dinah Sore

It often amazes me how traditional the theatre can be, I mean an art-form rooted in “the suspension of disbelief,” so often can’t come up with creative ways to include the LGBTQ community, non whites, and those with disabilities on a regular basis. Of course, there are exceptions, but clearly not enough. So, while the…

Inside the Green Room With Peter Andrew Danzig

I once heard life described as a series of circuits. I don’t recall the exact wording and won’t pretend to be an expert on circuits, so work with me here, I’m aiming for a general understanding.

Inside The Green Room With Elizabeth Licorish

Sebastian Cummings I was forced to run a mile for the first time in the fourth grade, when I transferred to Robert E. Lee elementary school in Virginia (my fifth school at this point in my academic career). It took me 15 minutes (I can walk a mile in less than 15 minutes these days)….

Inside The Green Room With Darius Ferdynand

      Have you seen John Leguizamo’s one man show, Ghetto Klown? At one point in the show he describes a stage in the creative process he often goes through: he writes, gets depressed, hates himself, watches porn, and masturbates… over and over again. John Leguizamo and I are the same person. I’ve been…

Inside The Green Room With Jennifer Summerfield

Sebastian Cummings You learn you have been cast in a show. Fantastic! You don’t suck after all, someone wants you to act in their show! They didn’t think your choices in that audition were stupid. See, I tried to tell you that, but you were too busy repeatedly slamming your head into your bedroom wall…

Inside The Green Room With Erlina Ortiz

Sebastian Cummings Every so often I meet someone and have… a moment of instant recognition; a feeling that this person and I have crossed paths before, that we are connected, or that we will reconnect much further in the future. The moments I am privileged to have with these individuals are almost always filled with…
