008 – Mary Yost & Hunter Green: GODSPELL

After a bit of a hiatus, Tim talks to director Mary Yost and actor Hunter Green about the Owen Theatre’s production of Godspell. They discuss how this 1971 musical of biblical proportions continues to speak to the twenty-first century. Hunter talks about searching deep into his soul to portray Jesus. Mary explores her collaboration with others, relaying how this heartwarming production was built from the ensemble up. We also converse about road donuts, sleep schedules, and what makes a hero.

002 – Sean K. Thompson

In this (much easier to hear) episode of Strutting & Fretting, Tim talks to director Sean K. Thompson about his upcoming production of Kiss Me Kate. During the conversation, they dive deep into the Conroe Shakespeare Festival, as well as Sean’s adventures as an actor, filmmaker, talk show host, novelist, and playwright – which includes a nude scene, death threats, and protecting civil discourse.  ­

For fun, we also delve into foreign films, bomb shelters, and Girl Scout cookies. Finally, Sean rounds out the time with the definitive mouthful of Hamlet!

Ep. 1 – Amy & Jared Barnes from Haven Arts Theatre

In the premiere episode of Strutting and Fretting, we talk to Amy and Jared Barnes, the creators of Haven Arts Theatre. We discuss their dreams for this new venue, which looks to collaborate with a multitude of artists, dancers, singers, actors, playwrights, and directors from Houston. They elaborate on their first original production: “Come Alive,” their Kickstarter page, and their experiences as actors and choreographers.

Just for fun, we also discuss a few unrelated subjects – including artificial intelligence, the “Great American Novel,” and other tangents. Finally, Jared and Amy round out the hour with an askew performance from Much Ado About Nothing.
