Social media continues to shape the way people communicate and go about life.
A new production by HotCity Theatre called “Connected” focuses on the contemporary subject of social media (Twitter, Facebook, interactive gaming, etc.) and why, despite constant connectivity, many people still feel so alone.
Host Steve Potter talked with playwright Lia Romeo, director Chuck Harper and Caitlin Mickey, who plays the roles of Meghan, Sarah and Sharon.
Interestingly, HotCity Theatre is using social media and encouraging the audience to connect with the play’s characters through Facebook:
