0:01:05 Bryn was away for some secret reason, but assures us that all will be revealed in time and it will be compelling
0:01:35 And what about the "lost" episode 42…?
0:02:50 Bryn and Nilsa wax rhapsodic about NYC and all the things you can do there. Again. Do they really need to stop going-on about it? Please let us know.
0:04:45 And Laura kinda wants to go to NYC!
0:05:45 Laura has been up to so much, including being Chicago Fringe Festival Internship Director
0:10:35 A suddenly open slot at Fringe meant that Laura could add her show "Meet Me On The Ceiling" to the fest. Co-written by Laura and her late friend Pat Welch.
0:15:15 Laura is also in a friend's show "A Perfect Age"
0:15:50 And in the Three Cat Productions Solo Festival with "Punk Grandpa". Our friend and former podcast guest Captain Ambivalent also performed at this fest.
0:17:30 Laura hides from compliments. HIDES, I tell you. Hear for yourself.
0:18:25 But there has been crying and sadness, too. Let's just say, finding the right venue for the right play is incredibly important.
0:24:00 Laura has developed innovative promotion tactics and played "Punk Grandpa" to a sold out Elgin Fringe Festival audience. Did we mention that she was in Elgin Fringe, too?
0:30:05 Laura enticed Orlando Fringe Fest fixture Bikini Katie up to Chicago Fringe- she is an innovator in the realm of tasteful topboob advertising. And a wholesome, sweet person. https://www.facebook.com/BikiniAdvertisingSpace
0:35:10 Laura learned to some new vocal warm-up games, like The Vomit One, from production manager Rachel Stalens
0:37:50 Bryn and Nilsa's friend, Julie Mitre, was Mrs. SWAK in "Meet Me On The Ceiling"
0:41:20 Yes! We just earned our "Explicit" rating. Big time.
0:47:40 The Pop-Up Sex Book. Hot. http://goo.gl/5l7Bw0
0:48:45 And Laura's doing a reading for The Theatre of Western Springs (http://www.theatrewesternsprings.com/)
0:49:50 And what is up with Nilsa? To start, a table read of Desi Moreno Penson's "Comida de Puta" which will premiere in 2015. (http://www.bretadamsltd.net/content/client/plays/desi-moreno-penson-2/)
0:56:30 Ms. Penson's plays always have a horror/fantastical element to them http://www.broadwayplaypubl.com/DEVIL%20LAND.htm
1:00:05 Nilsa has been sent out on many more full print go-sees, not just parts go-sees. And is having fun!
1:05:05 Nilsa works for the Hogwarts of the Upper West Side. There's even a headmaster with magical hounds. Baaaark liiiike Faaaang, bark like Fang…
1:09:35 And Nilsa has been writing her solo show "The Care I Need" because she has an April 15 table read with Lone Star Theatre Company () (http://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Lone-Star-Theatres-2014-15-Season-to-Feature-New-Works-by-David-Davila-Nilsa-Reyna-More-20140912)
1:11:30 Bryn teases next week's podcast. Did you know that he was on the board of a film company, Soft Cage Films? Neither did most people. And he promises deeper discussion of his early acting career and his experience with key early collaborators. Plus, a new social media strategy! Plus new a new podcast strategy! Believe it when you see it! And you will see it!
