3.14 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 111 Neighborhood Playlist Behind the Scenes www.ypal.org/connect Megan Quigley, 38, owns the Tangerine Closet on Frankfort Avenue in Clifton. "Tangerine," Led Zeppelin "A timeless classic. And my boutique's theme song." "Family Tree," Kings of Leon "Turn it up and rock out." "Bulletproof," Amanda Shires "Unique sound that grabs your attention and commands a listen." "Pale Blue Eyes," The Velvet Underground "Beautiful. Speaks for itself." "Oh Barbara," The Moonlight Peddlers "A fun song by a very talented local band. It includes cool whistling that my kids and I try to imitate." It's mid-February and Actors Theatre artistic director Les Waters is in a rehearsal room talking with Andrew Garman (above), who'll play Pastor Paul in The Christians from March 4 to April 6 at Actors, as part of the Humana Festival of New American Plays. Theirs are hushed voices deep in discussion. The playwright, Lucas Hnath, frantically types notes, keeping his focus on Garman, the man living Hnath's words as the leader of a megachurch with a baptismal font the size of a small pond. The Christians is about Pastor Paul's sermon on the malleability of faith and the trouble distinguishing God's voice from your own. "I have been thinking of bits and pieces about churches since the early 2000s," Hnath says, "but about a year ago…it just snapped together." He and Waters listen again as Garman reads his line: "Where are we today?" — Maliha Ikram 84-120 BACK.indd 111 2/20/14 12:23 PM
