My interview with Matt Williams is now one of my new favorites.
In our in-depth exchange, the veteran sitcom writer-producer -- and playwright -- opens up about his career path and his widely publicized "epic battle" with Roseanne back in the day and how that ultimately led him to his next best thing.
Williams seems like he will always be a playwright at heart, though, despite his TV success. And, as he prepares for the Off-Broadway world premiere of his latest play, Actually, We're Fu**ked at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre, he describes the impulses that drove him to write the piece and why this "old white guy" thinks he has the perspective to tell a story about four potentially "fu**ed" Millennials.
Backstage.com recently included Mad Libs Live! in a feature publicizing an upcoming production of the show near Austin, Texas!
What's so extra super-cool about this production, though? The cast may include kids as young as 14! I don't think any MLL productions have cast kids so far, but it's an exciting idea on all kinds of levels and I look forward to more young talent participating in future productions!
In the meantime...put on your cowboy _____! Texas! Yee-haw!
National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene’s production of Fiddler On The Roof will transfer to an Off-Broadway, commercial run this January. Find out in my exclusive interview with CEO of NYTF Chris Massimine why this special production and NYTF's other cultural outreach strategies could be an essential antidote for our current social and political climate.
How exciting it was to have Mad Libs Live! perform at The Bushnell last month to a packed crowd of excited kids! This was the first of several engagements the show will play in the 2018-2019 season ahead of the full tour that begins in the Fall of 2019.
For more info on where we will be playing, or to book the show, please contact our friends over at Off Broadway Touring!
