Welcome back to Third Coast Rewind. We’re back with another installment of readings from Kill Your Darlings.
This is the second edition of the podcast that puts the spotlight on Third Coast Review and Tree Falls Production’s Kill Your Darlings, a live lit/improv mashup series over at Comedy Sportz Chicago. The series is the product of director and producer Karin McKie’s vast imagination. Each night of Kill Your Darlings is framed by one of the seven cultural categories that match the pages on Third Coast Review (Stages, Screens, Music, Art, Lit, Food, and Beyond) and lets readers and improv actors give their takes on the evening’s theme.
This episode features a few excerpts from the Music, Screens, and Beyond nights of the series. Karin McKie shares the pitfalls of multiple “Karins” in school gym classes, Aaron Sanchez follows up with his Styx concert experience, Ada Cheng takes us through a difficult moment in her childhood and Nancy Bishop lets us in on the City Lady Blues
If you would like to attend Kill Your Darlings, the final installment of the series will take place on September 14th at 7:00pm. CSz Theater Chicago is located at 929 W. Belmont, just east of the Belmont CTA station. Tickets are $10 or $5 for students with ID.
