Today, we'll hear first about one of the ways Baltimore’s Everyman Theater has adapted to the new normal: they’ve attached themselves to a city-sponsored film festival. The Baltimore City Office of Equity and Civil Rights is hosting the Fair Housing Film Festival from August 24 to 28, and Everyman’s entry is a live theater event, The House That Holds Us, a virtual evening of theatrical readings, scenes, and monologues that examines the housing experience in Baltimore.
Joining Tom via Zoom to talk about the new work is Vincent Lancisi. He is the founder and Artistic Director of the Everyman Theatre.
