I love a good psycho thriller, but there aren't many musical psycho thrillers, so I was quite intrigued when I found out about Interview, a new psycho musical thriller, produced and directed by Dimo Hyun Jun Kim. In Interview, a seemingly innocuous job interview for a writer’s apprentice quickly turns sinister when the true motives of the interviewee, "Matt," are revealed. Interview will play at the Theatre at St. Clement's thru 3/5!

In the world of reality television, there is something for everyone. I, personally, love competition shows, seeing the very talented to the not so talented. Season 11 of the The Voice was no exception. With her booming voice, I was cheering for Wé McDonald to go all the way and all the way she did, right up to the finals! I am overjoyed to interview Wé about The Voice & upcoming concert at NYC's Highline Ballroom this Friday, 2/3 at 7pm w/special guests Matthew Whitaker & Friends!
