Fame & Infamy

"Fame or infamy, either one is preferable to being forgotten when you have passed from this realm." - Christopher Paolini


Guest host Dylan Marron presents three stories about the fickle nature of fame. A classic action hero may be past his time in “The South Asian Speakers Series Presents the Archeologist and Adventurer Indiana Jones,” by Tania James, performed by Bryan Cranston. Everyday racism transforms a young woman into a death-defying activist in “Today, You’re a Black Revolutionary,” by Jade Jones, performed by Moses Ingram. And pop stars, their fads, and their handlers are fair game in “On a Day Tammy Had Not Eaten Enough Yellow,” by Kenneth Calhoun, performed by Michelle Buteau, John Cameron Mitchell, and Miriam Shor.
