Episode 78: John Benjamin Hickey: Moving Target
In This Episode
On this week’s show, Jamie, Jennifer, and Rob are joined by actor and director John Benjamin Hickey. Everyone checks in on how they’re dealing with the shut down and trying to stay sane, then John discusses his most recent projects: starring in last season’s “The Inheritance” and his Broadway directorial debut with Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite”, and the group chats about John’s remarkable roles in “Love! Valour! Compassion!”, “Cabaret”, and his Tony Award-winning portrayal of Felix Turner in the 2011 revival of “The Normal Heart”. Jamie can’t turn down the opportunity to gush about Laura Linney, then Rob gives us a look at the incredible career of playwright Neil Simon.
This week’s music: “Time After Time” from Glee, “Don’t Tell Mama”, “Tomorrow Belongs To Me,” and “Entr’Acte” from “Cabaret: New Broadway Cast Recording”, and “Young Men” from “The Inheritance”.
