In Deep Radio
In August 2018 Dragon Productions Theatre Company is proud to begin hosting
In Deep with Angie Coiro began as The Angie Coiro Show on local San Francisco radio, and became an independent production in 2007. By 2015, it was a full-fledged live production at Kepler's Books in Menlo Park. It's now produced at both Kepler's and the Dragon Theatre in Redwood City.
We focus on genuine conversations - real give and take with smart thinkers, entertaining personalities, and influential political figures. In a world of short sound bites, quick cuts, and extravagant production, we produce "one full hour on one intriguing topic". The show records in front of a live audience on Thursdays from noon - 1p at the Dragon Theatre. Admission is free as are 90 minutes of parking in the Marshall or Jefferson parking garages adjacent to the theatre.
Doors open at 11:30a; show starts recording at noon and runs for 1 hour. Admission is free!
Thursday, Jan. 10th - John Judis
What's behind the rise of nationalism around world - and is there anything good to be mined there? John Judis says yes. Based on his travels in America, Europe, and Asia, the veteran political analyst found that almost all people share nationalist sentiments that can be the basis of vibrant democracies as well as repressive dictatorships. But how to preserve the good even as we work to battle the bad? John Judis is an editor-at-large at Talking Points Memo, a former senior writer at The National Journal and a former senior editor at The New Republic. His history in Bay Area journalism includes the founding of Socialist Revolution magazine and the East Bay Voice.
Thursday, Jan. 24th "That Don Reed Show" with Don Reed
Don Reed is a black man who's too white - or so a Saturday Night Live network exec told him. Except the network exec for In Living Color told him he's too black. Don's done the most productive thing he could do with that input: he wrote his own one-man show. The characters he looses on his audience evoke a hybrid of SNL and In Living Color, with some touching beats of The Carol Burnett Show. That Don Reed Show has just extended its run at the Marsh in Berkeley, CA. He'll cross the Bay to talk to Angie about his stories, his stand-up, and even a character or two he admits is - wait for it - "too white".
