Faria to curate Red Light Series

Jason Faria (a.k.a. Honey Punch) has been named the new curator of Seacoast Repertory Theatre’s Red Light Series.

“It just happened. The news was pretty sudden, just before the (Season) Reveal,” Faria says. “I haven’t had a lot of time to knock it out.”

“Knate Higgins was the first curator and inventor of it, and his mission was to keep Portsmouth weird. When Mad Men (James and Hart ) took over, they wanted to keep Knate’s mission alive while exposing adults to other types of theater like ‘Mad Haus,’ and … musicals and plays … like ‘New Brain’ or ‘Cruel Intentions’ (in 2021), shows that won’t sustain a mainstage run. I plan on continuing that trajectory.”
