    We've got news on The Pendant Shakespeare's production of "Henry VI, part 1," and our scripted show release calendar was updated through the end of 2023! But not with Henry VI, part 1 yet. I know, it's confusing, but listen... that's life. More Pendant shows keep charting around the world, and we've got exclusive previews of "The Kingery" episode 12x06, "Seminar" episode 109, and "Genesis Avalon: Patriot" episode 12! And Jordan and Ben Hernandez discuss deep characters and serious guys, backsass, and cyclical gods! Welcome to the present-apocalypse.
