Ashton's Audio Interview: French Stewart - Harry Solomon on the 1990s sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun stars in "FINKS" at the Electric Lodge

On the verge of TV stardom, a comic meets an actress/activist, their romance blossoms—as does their risk of being blacklisted for their political activities. The House Un-American Activities Committee, tasked with exposing communist subversion, conducted hearings which lead to more than 300 directors, actors, radios personalities, and screenwriters to be boycotted by studios. Friends were turned against friends, and family. Most who were named never recovered their careers. Those who willingly testify—naming others to the committee—will be branded as "finks."*

Ashton's Audio Interview: Murray Mednick (award winning playwright) and the cast of "Mayakovsky and Stalin" at The Lounge Theatre

According to Mednick, “The play traces the parallel stories of these two couples. Lilya was a B actress who convinced Stalin, after Mayakovsky's suicide, to restore Mayakovsky to the canon of accepted Soviet poets. Nadya committed suicide during a state dinner, renouncing both her husband and his policies. It's about the repercussions of power, about the push and pull between secularism and religion.”
