Person Place Thing with Randy Cohen

No one moves more gracefully between Hollywood and New York. Out west, she wrote for NYPD Blue, among many TV shows, before creating her own, Smash. Back east, her plays include Mauritius, Seminar, and the Pulitzer finalist Omnium Gatherum. She won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America, which isn’t really between Hollywood and New York, but we can’t be slaves to the map or the metaphor: she wouldn’t. Enjoy this recut conversation from 2014, with a bonus segment from another playwright, Suzan-Lori Parks.

Interview with Trouble Writer/Director Theresa Rebeck

Alcohollywood

Novelist, screenwriter and Pulitzer-nominated playwright Theresa Rebeck is a woman of many hats - the latest of which is the director of the independent ensemble comedy Trouble. A film with modest ambitions but no small amount of charm, its tale of a small-town sibling rivalry is bolstered by tremendous performances from a more-than-qualified cast (Anjelica Huston, Bill Pullman, David Morse, Julia Stiles, Brian D'arcy James, the list goes on).  For this special minisode of the podcast, Clint sat down for a phone interview with Rebeck to talk about the prevailing themes of her works, working with such an overqualified cast, and the intimate appeal of rural America. Take a listen! (Thanks to our sponsor Overcast, part of the Chicago Podcast Coop!)
