I had my own introduction to Ginger Johnson and Sink the Pink a year ago when I chaired a Q&A for How to Catch a Krampus, the first in a new queer trilogy at the Pleasance Theatre, which also marked the drag collective’s first-ever theatrical residency after a decade of mega club nights, festivals and glitter-doused parties.
In The Good Scout’s final sell-out week at Above the Stag Theatre, Mate Terri Paddock returned to chair a post-show discussion with writer-director Glenn Chandler and his cast about the play’s frightening timeliness.
After Rat Pack Confidential and Sinatra and Me, Richard Shelton wanted to take a new look at the life of Frank Sinatra, on the eve of his (short-lived) retirement. Terri Paddock chaired a Sinatra: Raw post-show talk.
