Tinsel & Tine Shines a Philly Spotlight
Theatre Exile's Production of "Lost Girls"
The play was written by a voice new to Philadelphia's stage - John Pollono, an American playwright who also penned the award-winning "Small Engine Repair". Pollono has appeared on NBC's hit show This is Us, and he also wrote the soon-to-be-released movie Stronger with Jake Gyllenhaal.
I got a chance to ask John Pollono a few questions
about both projects:
ABOUT THEATRE EXILE Founded in 1996 by Joe Canuso and Trish Kelly, Theatre Exile was created by a group of artists who wanted to rattle the gates of the mainstream. In 2013 Deborah Block was named Producing Artistic Director after seven years of serving as Co-Artistic Director. For their excellence in producing theatre, they have received 87 Barrymore Award nominations, with 19 awards total. Theatre Exile believes in freedom of expression formulated through innovation, exploration and provocation, all while providing a safe and creative environment, in which local artists can grow, experiment and ultimately, find their own voice.
T&T's last Philly Spotlight on Theatre Exile was a review of the Edward Albee play Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf
