Baring It All with Call Me Adam Podcast Interview

Season 4: Episode 10:

Marilu Henner 

Madwomen of the West


I am so excited to catch up with actress Marilu Henner, whom I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing in 2021.

When I heard she was returning to the New York stage, in Sandra Tsing Loh's Madwomen of the West, I wasted no time in trying to get a new interview. I am so grateful she agreed to talk with me a second time.

Marilu is known for starring in the classic TV sitcoms Taxi & Evening Shade as well as over 76 films (including 28 Hallmark movies), 7 Broadway shows, 5 Golden Globe nominations, and being the author of 10 New York Times Best Selling Books.


This time around, Marilu is Baring It All with Call Me Adam about:
  • How she got involved with Madwomen of the West
  • A time when her opinion was deemed outrageous
  • The craziest thing she's done for at audition
  • What she still wants to accomplish
  • Putting her superhero memory to the test
  • So much more

About Madwomen of the West:

Madwomen of the West takes place at Jules' stunning Brentwood mansion, where hangry (she's sugar-cleansing). Marilyn is throwing a surprise birthday brunch for Claudia, who hates birthdays. Champagne corks pop — and tempers flare — when their long-estranged celebrity friend Zoey crashes the party, fresh from her TED Talks. Expect hilarity, outrageous opinions, and unexpected wisdom about what it means to be a woman (no matter what pronouns you use) in the 21st century.

Madwomen of the West plays at The Actor's Temple in NYC through December 31, 2023 (339 West 47th Street).

More on Marilu Henner:

She has done it all: 76 films (including 28 Hallmark), 7 Broadway shows, 2 classic sitcoms (Taxi and Evening Shade), 5 Golden Globe nominations, and the New York Times Best Selling author of ten books on health, parenting, memory, and lifestyle improvement.
