SHOWS: Wicked, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Boys in the Band

One of Broadway’s busiest directors, Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, joins Rob and Kevin to look back on his acting career, discuss the process of creating the shuttered Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, and to walk listeners through the process of creating Netflix’s The Boys in The Band, starring Jim Parsons, which drops on September 30th.

Joe pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how he discovered the staging of Defying Gravity, what it is like directing the genius that is Laurie Metcalf, and why he decided to tackle The Boys in the Band for a whole new generation.

Also, Joe shines the spotlight on Ryan Murphy, Neil Simon, and Nathan Lane!
