Meet the Staff: Brian Polak

yoga pigby Kelsey Carthew

Over the course of my summer here, I have been getting to know the amazing staff here at Boston Court, and I figured that you lovely readers should get a chance to read some tidbits the staff shared with me. I have asked them all a few questions about themselves and their time here at Boston Court, and their responses will be posted by person.

The man behind the Boston Court Twitter and Facebook page, Brian Polak answers a few important questions of life in this entry.

 BRIAN POLAK: Marketing/ Communications Manager, Boston Court Performing Arts Center
1. What has been your favorite show to work on or see here at Boston Court? Why?
BP: The Twentieth-Century Way. It was a complicated play and very hard to explain through marketing. I enjoyed the challenge of it from that P.O.V. It wasn’t exactly the most straightforward story and there were also some spoilers that I couldn’t reveal which made creating a preview video difficult. But people responded positively to the play and it went on to do well at the NY International Fringe Festival. It’s one of those plays that would be really fun to bring back.
2. Why did the chicken really cross the road (witnesses testify that it was not to get to the other side)?
BP: I’m a vegetarian so if this alleged chicken really did attempt to cross a road, it would have been a soy-based chicken. And  soy-based chickens don’t have bones.  Therefore it would be unable to cross any road unless it was in a wheelchair pushed by somebody.  So the real question is who is pushing the wheelchair-bound soy-based chicken across the road and why?
3. Tell me a funny story about something that happened here at Boston Court.
BP: In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.
