Open: 05/04/16- Close: 05/22/16 MURROW
“Murrow,” a one-character play in two acts, traces the life of famed broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow from his beginnings as a young man growing up in Washington State, to his entry into radio with the fledgling CBS radio network, to his famed broadcasts from London during the “blitz,” to his on-air showdown with Senator Joseph McCarthy  in 1954. The play ends as Murrow is forced off the air by his one-time friend and mentor Bill Paley when Murrow’s penchant for controversial programs becomes too risky for the CBS Corporation to bear. More than just a biography of one of the icons of American journalism, “Murrow” is ultimately a powerful, scathing indictment of the modern corporate-media complex.

Albo explores the insanity of modern digital dating, the reproductive industry, the lingering shadow of AIDS for gay men, and what it takes to be a father.
