5/11/17 – Steve Cisneros
Steve Cisneros and a member of the Phantom Theatre Project (PTP) acting troupe join Michael and Andrew to discuss #The Wall… a World Premiere play written by Bruce Gevirtzman which will be presented May 18 (for two performances only) at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts in La Mirada, CA. The play features an all-youth cast which targets PTP’s teen audiences, and confronts and deals with the (ir)responsibility and consequences of social media usage. As the landscape of digital communication has altered the way in which the youth of today interact with one another, it was only a matter of time before digital platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and perhaps most prevalent: Snapchat & YouTube…were utilized for bullying and other forms of harassment. #TheWall shines a light on the emotional turmoil caused by cyberbullying; a new method of perpetuating one of the oldest teen issues known to society: bullying.
