First aired: December 26, 2015.

We welcome actors Jackie Hoffman, John "Lypsinka" Epperson, and Jason SweetTooth Williams from the cast of the Transport Group's hit revival of “The Princess and the Pea” - based classic musical “Once Upon A Mattress,” now at the Abrons Arts Center.

Next up, we have a conversation with three principals now appearing in “King Charles III,” Mike Bartlett's futuristic play about Britain's conflicted future King and his problematic family. Our guests are Tim Pigott-Smith (who plays the title role), Oliver Chris and Richard Goulding (playing his sons William and Harry). The trio discuss this critically-acclaimed British import and why it is still desirable for the UK to maintain a royal family in the Twenty-First Century.
