After seeing Michael McKeever's new play Daniel's Husband I couldn't wait to find out more about it. I was thrilled when I called, and Matthew Montelongo answered. I was so taken by his performance, it's great to delve more into Matthew & his portrayal of "Mitchell." Daniel's Husband takes an unflinching look at how we choose to tie the knot. Or not. Daniel's Husband plays at Cherry Lane Theatre in NYC through 4/28 only!
There are certain dates that will forever be embedded in everyone's mind. One of those dates is September 11, 2001. In the new Broadway musical, Come From Away, Caesar Samayoa is one of the actors who gets to share these stories about the 7,000 stranded passengers & the small town in Newfoundland that put their lives on hold & opened up their homes to this world of strangers. Through this interview, Caesar reinforces how Broadway comes together to uplift during difficult times.
It's always exciting when an interview I did with one person leads to an interview with another. Because of my interview with Fair Haven filmmaker Kerstin Karlhuber, I found my way to actor/writer/producer Tom Malloy, who produced & co-starred in the film. It was great getting to learn more about Fair Haven + the other films/TV shows Tom has produced/starred in, including the Amazon comedy series Midtown, currently in its second season, about the banter that happens between cops.
Live from The Algonquin Hotel, "Call Me Adam" goes face to face with Feud: Bette and Joan writer Michael Zam! From the story lines to the characters to clearing up misconceptions about Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, I get the inside scoop on what it takes to bring the hit FX show to life. Michael & I had so much fun together that we had to divide this interview into two parts. The second half, will be released soon.
Robert L. Camina & I have been friends for a few years, so when I found out he was a filmmaker & that his new documentary Upstairs Inferno, about the deadly 1973 New Orleans gay bar arson was the subject, I called Robert & he answered. Upstairs Inferno is the most comprehensive & authoritative film about the fire and its aftermath. Upstairs Inferno will make its NYC premiere in the Manhattan Film Festival on Monday, 4/24 at 5pm & 7pm at Cinema Village, 7pm followed by a Q&A!
