Men With Microphones
Who can you trust to share your secrets?
A shadowy thief sneaks into the vaults of a prominent movie studio... Film critics and curators across America receive a mysterious but exciting invitation... A television personality is fired up to hit a casino for a major Hollywood press junket... And a private investigator receives an urgent summons...
The lives of these disparate characters all intersect in MEN WITH MICROPHONES, a thought-provoking and moving new play by Aaron S. Luk. MEN WITH MICROPHONES revolves around a pirate film festival. Drawn into the festivals orbit is a pair of estranged partners. One is a beloved and well-connected television personality; the other is a newspaper film critic who values cinema over much else. These two men will once again come together in a conflict for what may be the very soul of cinema.
In MEN WITH MICROPHONES, Luk has crafted a story drawn largely from real-life events. The play is approachable from many angles: it is at once an essayistic discourse on the state of cinema; a thrilling narrative in which colorful individuals take on a faceless, enveloping conspiracy; a political call to cultural action; and an exciting, almost fantastic tale in which film critics are heroes fighting the good fight.
MEN WITH MICROPHONES: If the cinema is their church, this is their pilgrimage.
The cast includes John Harrison, Michelle Lai, Leaf Nunes, Khamara Pettus, David Robson, Susan Salituro, and Chris Sellers.
