Lucky Penny banks on ‘PlayDemic’ Fest – Times-Herald

Feb 17, 2021

Lucky Penny banks on ‘PlayDemic’ Fest – Times-Herald vallejo 7 mins ago It’s probably misleading to say that Taylor Bartolucci and Barry Martin are witty. For the co-founders of Lucky Penny Productions, there was nothing really witty about pandemics. In this duo accustomed to performing live theaters at the 7,200-square-foot community arts center in Napa, and of course in other entertainment worlds, Greg Coffin’s February 14th to March 1st, COVID-19 The body struck the entire 2020 season. The September podcast promoting Lucky Penny was great, but nothing beats the performance. Artistic Director and Managing Director will be opening a virtual curtain from February 26th to 28th at the “Lucky Penny Video Theater Play Demic Festival”, a collection of stories by Bay Area writers. A pandemic begins, how life progresses in it, and what happens next. “Part of our master plan was that it didn’t cost us much, that is, doing licensed shows,” Martin said at the start of COVID-19. “The licensing company has nothing to do with you. I didn’t allow it to be streamed. I wondered, “What can we do?” Bartolucci, who joined Martin at a conference call on Tuesday afternoon, said the concept “hatched in June” and called for submission in September. At first, “I was worried that there were too many submissions. I get too many scripts,” Martin said the entry wasn’t too overwhelming. “We limited it to the Bay Area authors, so it had to be reduced and new,” Martin said. The topic requirements were simple. “It had to be a pandemic experience or their experience and had a minimal personality,” Bartolucci said. “We encouraged solo plays without physical contact like the kissing scene,” Martin said. Make the final cut: “2020 Sucks Out Loud” by Rob Broadhurst, also known as “Rob Evaluates 2020”. “Fitness in the Time of Covid-19” by Pat Williams and Liz Wildberger. “How to Survive a Pandemic” by Charlene Steen; “No Exit 2020” by Kathleen Andersen. “Pause” by Joan Hawley McClain. “The Grandy Family Newsletter, 2020” by George Bereschik; “KA Meeting” by Martin. Donald Loftus’s “Tonight’s Stage Door” According to Martin, the play was rehearsed and filmed “in a COVID-safe way” and screened online and on demand as a payment method. The PlayDemic Festival was targeted for November, but was postponed as Martin and Bartolucci supported the Christmas cabaret at Justin Siena High School. “We decided to push PlayDemic back in the spring and give it the time it deserves,” says Bartolucci. The producer acknowledged that timing was a consideration in eliminating some submissions. Martin shelved his own entry — it was voting-centric and became irrelevant after the November elections. There were some “fragments” in Broadhurst, but they were rejected because they were politically based. “It wasn’t as interesting as it was before the election,” said Bartolucci. Most of the plays submitted in the summer were “still relevant” at the end of February, according to Martin. Good for virtual PlayDemic festivals, but unfortunately it also means that pandemics are ubiquitous. “I wish we hadn’t done this at all,” Martin lamented. “Hopefully we are in the process of improving and this is irrelevant in a couple of months.” “It would be perfect without this experience,” Bartolucci agreed. Still, under the maxim that the show must continue, the duo are doing what Lucky Penny Productions can do to keep it from rusting. “We had some great submissions,” Bartolucci said, but many were “knocked out” from the lineup because “they would be too difficult to produce.” In response to reading several submissions, Martin said, “This is not for the stage. You wrote a movie, but we are not in the business.” “One was cheerful, but it was installed in eight different locations and needed a trampoline,” says Bartolucci. Still, “the talent of talent was really great,” she said. Unfortunately, pondering the pandemic at that social distance, one edict was “not touching,” Martin said. Of course, having the audience look at you from your sofa at home creates a strange environment. “I think Martin’s” KA Anonymous “-the AA meeting of” Karens “-is pretty interesting and one of the things that needs an audience,” Bartolucci said. According to Martin, PlayDemic follows the short-play format of a 10-minute festival produced by Lucky Penny for several years. “I went around the course five times with that concept.” The two agreed that the times were strange for the people of the community theater. “We shrunk ourselves back into a semi-hibernation,” Martin said. “I came out of the cave to do the project. I’ll wait and see what happens next.” After the pandemic “became too ambitious at the beginning,” Martin said, “We’re talking about late summer and autumn, so we’re probably doing one or two outdoor shows. It’s all different. . “ Lucky Penny Video Theater’s “PlayDemic Festival” virtual free seats (donations welcome) can be booked at any time throughout the weekend performance by visiting luckypennynapa.com.
