Lotus Eaters by Tommy Smith
with Carrie Coon, Betty Gilpin, Mari Yamamoto and Jo Mei


A SPECIAL, BEHIND THE SCENES TECHNICAL NOTE: For this piece, we employed a recording method we’ve never tried before. Tommy wrote the piece and then made a recording of himself performing all four parts. He then gave that recording to an actress who had never read the piece. She listened to Tommy’s recording and repeated the lines as she heard them. Her recording was then distributed to the four actors in this piece, none of whom had ever read or heard the piece before. What you’re hearing here is for actors confronting the material for the first time, delivering the lines as they hear them for the first time.

Five hundred actors around a SINGLE MIC!







How do you make a radio show again? HA HA HA HA HA!



Research is very important when you're playing a character a knotty and complex as Michelle Tanner.



Recording THE INTERNET. Caroline's radio piece, that is. Not the whole internet. That would be ridiculous.






Stifling laughter or yawning? It can be hard to tell late in a session.

A Message For 2011 From A Grateful Guy

posted by eric | december 16, 2011

This one's for you, 2011.


For the past few years, I’ve been keeping what’s known as a Gratitude Journal. Sound familiar? It may have been suggested you keep one by either Oprah or your therapist — they both know what’s best for you at 4:30 in the afternoon. For those of you who don’t know what it is, as the name suggests, it is a journal in which you detail a few things everyday for which you are grateful. It’s that simple, and I’m living proof that it does improve one’s outlook on the world.


Seeing as 2011 is quickly coming to a close, I thought I’d look over my 2011 Gratitude Journal entries to recap this year’s journey. Below are some highlights in chronological order:


-Without an agent I don’t have to give a percentage of any parts I book.

-My nights are free since I didn’t book that part.

-My hair is falling out slower than it was.

-My dad and I are finally becoming good friends.

-It was a beautiful day for his funeral.

-Panic attacks bad, anxiety meds goooooooooooooooood.

-I don’t have to leave town since I didn’t book that part.

-At least it’s not a world war.

-My chronic back problems aren’t worse/more frequent.

-My job gives me insurance.

-My insurance may not have covered the medical procedure, but at least with my mom’s help I still have some of my savings left.

-I can keep my job/healthcare since I didn’t book that part.

-Turning 30 isn’t so bad. I’ve still got lots of time for…[unfinished entry].


-She broke up with me before I proposed.

-Local liquor store has a deal wherein, if you buy 10 bottles, the 11th is FREE!

-Anxiety meds still soooooo gooooooooood.


In conclusion, my message to 2011 is this: GO F*** YOURSELF! And another thing — you owe me BIGTIME! Keep that in mind when I play the lottery this week. Oh, and just in case you didn’t hear me the first time, GO. F***. YOUR. SELF.


Happy Holidays, Everyone! And here’s to a happy new year!
