This week on the Popcorn Podcast, we were lucky enough to interview the very talented, David Dean Bottrell! For those of you who do not who he is, David is best know for being able to play, well, a psychopath. He was brilliant as Lincoln on Boston Legal, and has also made appearances on some of my favorite shows like Bones, NCIS, Criminal Minds, and Justified.
But on the week’s episode of The Popcorn Podcast, we got to learn a lot more about is “new” Project. David is one of the founders of Sci-Fest:
The first-of-its-kind festival offered audiences two rotating evenings of new, professionally produced, visually compelling, 15-minute sci-fi plays – all performed live on stage. The inaugural line-up included a world premiere adaptation of literary legend Ursula Le Guin’s “The Wife’s Story” and an innovative revival of Ray Bradbury’s chilling, “Kaleidoscope.” In addition, Sci-Fest LA presented 5 late-night sci-fi themed comedy shows.
All 9 one-act plays produced by the festival were directed and designed by an “A-Team” of Los Angeles-based theatre professionals and featured many well-known actors from iconic sci-fi franchises such as “Star Trek,” “The X-Files,” “Supernatural,” “Lost,” “Grimm,” “Heroes,” “Fringe,” “The Hunger Games,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “True Blood.”
Take a listen here:
The show runs from May 5 – 31st and the venue will again be the ACME Theater, 135 N. La Brea Avenue in Hollywood. To find out more about the show, but tickets, or to donate, check out these links:
