The Friends took a break last week because Diep was out of town. But this week, they’re coming back in time to talk about the Tony Awards. It’s happening! And the Friends have opinions about what the awards ceremony should look like this year.
This week’s guest is actor Daniel K. Isaac, who is a recurring character on the Showtime television show Billions. But did you know that Isaac is a big theater nerd? He has multiple binders and drawers dedicated to all the playbills he’s collected over his 11 years in NYC and he shares some of his favorites, plus gives tips on how he could afford to buy theater tickets when he was still a struggling artist.
Here are links to things the Friends talked about this episode:
- What theater stuff Daniel K. Isaac has been up to in quarantine: a 24 Hour plays monologue, Pride Plays, the Homebound Project, and BD Wong’s Songs From an Unmade Bed.
