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!

An Interview with Playwright Alexis Scheer

We’re excited to have Playwright Alexis Scheer curating Series 4 of our Play Discussion Club, entitled A Spotlight on Latinx Voices. Alexis’ play, Our Dear Dead Drug Lord, recently made its Off-Broadway debut at WP Theater and was named to the Kilroy’s List in 2019. Her most recent play, Laughs in Spanish, had its world premiere at Boston Playwrights’ Theatre in 2019 and was recently selected for the National New Play Network’s Annual National Showcase of New Plays.

The Boston Project Podcast
