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 Barr 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 massive success with Roseanne, Home Improvement and other popular shows. 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.
This column on the Jackie Robinson Museum is one of my favorites to date because I am so excited for the museum and all it will represent. I also learned a lot about the amazing Jackie Robinson Foundation, which has been sponsoring wonderful programs for decades.
The Jackie Robinson Museum won't open until December 2019, but there will be related events in NYC and throughout the country all year in commemoration of Jackie Robinson's 100th birthday (January 31) and in celebration of the museum's opening.
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.
