The Pink Unicorn

The Pink Unicorn is an award-winning solo piece that traces one mother’s journey from apprehension to tolerance to acceptance. Trisha Lee considers herself to be open-minded and accepting, that is, at least compared to the other mothers in her conservative hometown of Sparkton, Texas. But Trisha’s values are called into question when her teenager Jo comes out as genderqueer and attempts to start a Gay Straight Alliance. Faced with opposition from her family, church, and the local high school, Trisha embarks on a journey to meet her child with love.

Where Are They Wednesday: Sam Simahk

Curly in Oklahoma!, Tony in West Side Story, Rapunzel’s Prince in Into the Woods — there’s no role too big or song too tough for Sam Simahk, who has wowed audiences across the country over the past decade from Broadway to Houston, Texas to Fenway Park. Even at SpeakEasy, audiences have seen Sam command the stage with his powerful voice in Big Fish, and with no words at all in Small Mouth Sounds. With Sam back with us virtually for our 30th Anniversary Benefit Concert, we thought we’d ask him a few questions about his one-of-a-kind career – and if he has any advice for SpeakEasy on turning 30.

Where Are They Wednesday: Mal Malme

It was just three years ago that actor Mal Malme came ashore at SpeakEasy after a wild five-week ride in a play that sparked exciting conversations about the nature of history and who gets to tell our stories.  Written by Jacklyn Backhaus, Men on Boats told a time-worn tale — the discovery of the Grand Canyon — in a bold new way:  with a racially diverse cast of female, trans, gender-fluid, and gender-diverse actors portraying the expedition’s all-white, all-male crew.

Alex Lonati on Standing Room Only

Between her work as SpeakEasy’s Community Engagement and Special Events Manager and as an up-and-coming director in Boston, Alex Lonati wears a lot of hats. But even over six years later, she’s still remembered for her first major role in the Boston theatre scene: host of WERS’ Standing Room Only, Boston’s premier and only musical theatre radio show.

With Standing Room Only’s Kitchen Kickline on Saturday, we thought we’d ask Alex about her four years as the host of SRO to build some excitement for this weekend!
