The Honeycomb Trilogy Returns to New York Fall 2015

Mac Rogers’ critically acclaimed, award-winning The Honeycomb Trilogy returns to New York for a rep run. Here is a Q&A to answer all your questions about this triple-the-fun production, opening October 13th. And a preview video too.
Q. WTF is The Honeycomb Trilogy?
A. The Honeycomb Trilogy is a 3 part sci-fi epic by Mac Rogers that premiered over 6 months in 2012 and earned two rave New York Times reviews, eight critic’s picks, and one NYIT Award for Outstanding Premiere Production.
Q. If you already did these plays, why are you doing them again?
A. We have dreamed about running the Trilogy in rep since 2012, but couldn’t find the right space for it until the amazing folks at The Gym at Judson reached out to us. The Trilogy began with readings upstairs in the Judson Memorial Church Choir Loft, so this feels like coming home.
A. Performances begin October 13, 2015.

Q. How is this whole “rep” thing going to work?
A. On Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights at 8pm, you can see individual plays from the Trilogy, with performance nights rotating from week to week. On Saturdays and Sundays, you can see the entire Trilogy in one day! Advance Man at 2pm, Blast Radius at 5pm, and Sovereign at 8:30pm.
Q. Are you people freaking crazy?
A. Probably a little. But we’ve road tested all three parts of The Honeycomb Trilogy and we know they work. Now we’ve just got to put it all together–and figure out how to transform the set from a 21st Century living room to a war zone to a ramshackle reconstruction courthouse, all in one day!
Q. OMG, this is going to be like that one time I binge-watched Battlestar Galactica!
A. Exactly. Except we hope to make you less angry with the ending.
Q. I get very hungry. Will there be things for me to eat at the theater?
A. We do too! Our concessions will include the finest in binge-watching snacks, and we plan to partner with a boxed meal caterer to make it easy for you to eat dinner between parts 2 & 3!
Q. Will it be the same as last time? What will be different?
A. As of now, the vast majority of the original cast plans to return. The scripts aren’t changing tremendously, but Mac has a few tricks up his sleeve. So figure it’ll be about 20% more awesome than last time.
