Hello Beautiful!

Act Three

In the wake of recent news, Edward asks Jason and PJ if either of them would stage a production that would portray the prophet Mohammed in a negative light. For his answer, Jason takes a cue from the past and shares his theory of Shakespeare's response to great national trauma—he only wrote romances. A surprise call from the Congo Square Theatre Company ignites a discussion on Black Theatre. And do theater companies fear putting on plays that might be labeled unpatriotic? We also listen to a scene from Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of after the quake.
