First aired: March 5, 2018.

First, we welcome writer/composer Richard Thomas with actors Terrence Mann and Will Swenson from Thomas’ controversial work Jerry Springer -The Opera, which created a sensation in the UK 13 years ago, but was considered so outrageous that it only now premieres in NYC in a production at The Pershing Square Signature Center.

Next, playwright Jordan Harrison, director Oliver Butler and actor Michael Cyril Creighton discuss their production of Harrison’s play at The Vineyard Theatre, The Amateurs, about a theatre troop fleeing The Black Death in the middle ages and these players’ contribution to the modern dramatic concepts of character and individuality
