There are so many reasons to listen to this, our 17th episode of On the Grid! Not only because we have playwright/actor/etc./etc. Ashley Naftule on to talk about his new play “Ear,” based loosely on painter Vincent Van Gogh. But also because it marks a point of closure. This will be Space 55’s last major production at its 7th Street and Pierce location. Like so many downtown venues before it, Space 55 is being forced to move because the land it sits on was recently bought. The venue has been a safe haven for locals to cut their teeth performing and a place for seasoned actors to try new and experimental things. In this episode, we pay homage to a place that has been a refuge for artists since its creation in 2006. And we take a peek at what may be in store for it. If you’ve ever had any involvement with Space 55, this is worth a listen!
