Saw the show, and wanna talk about it?

About to see the show and wanna see what all the buzz is about?

At intermission and curious how other people have responded?

For the run of the WHIPPING MAN, we’ll be having a month long on-line conversation on twitter with the actors, local and national experts with insight/strong opinions and YOU.

bbc7b4a05d3747d2d30cac7ebd25e92aThey’ll all be talking about the show, issues/thoughts around it, favorite moments, historical questions – whatever the show brings up – wanna join in and see what people are saying?

We’ll be adding even more people to the conversation as the month progresses, but as you can see, it’s a full assortment of people ready to chat about the show, answer your questions, and ask you questions.

Just use #gevaWHIP on twitter to get in on the conversation.

Extra big thanks to the New York Council For The Humanities, whose generous funding is making this engagement work happen.
