B Street Theatre Opens A New Performance Space For Artists In Residence


The B Street Theatre's production of "Airness" runs through June 10 at The Sofia.


Upstairs at the B opens up with new programs to feature works by the B Street Theatre artists in residence.

Company members Dave Pierini, Tara Sissom and Stephanie Altholz return to Insight to talk about their show, "Maximum Occupancy." It's a longform improv show for a late-night audience.

Also, Dave Pierini previews "Poison Boot" — a live podcast where he interviews actors about high anxiety moments on stage.

And we preview "Airness," a play about air guitar competitions.
