THE BOYS WHO BRUNCH: w/ writer Sean Abley, actors Bill Brochtrup and Parnell Damone Marcano and sound designer Jeff Gardner

DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Dennis is joined via Zoom by four of the creators behind the new audio drama 90069: West Hollywood - Brunch, Interrupted, which is one of a series of Zip Code plays produced by the L.A.-based Antaeus Theatre Company. The four guests are writer Sean Abley, actors Parnell Damone Marcano and Bill Brochtrup (who is also the company's Artistic Director) and sound designer Jeff Gardner.  The quartet talk about the process of creating the project during COVID and the play's oh-so-current theme of gentrification of gay neighborhoods. Then the group joins Dennis for a rousing round of You Don't Know My Life! where they each submit answers to this question: What's something you've witnessed or experienced where you thought, 'Only in West Hollywood?'  The answers range from the hilarious--a shirtless neighbor asking, "Do you have any poppers I could borrow?"--to the poignant--RIP, Silver Spoon and Yukon Mining Company diners. You can listen to the audio play Brunch Interrupted here: https://antaeus.org/special_events/90069-west-hollywood/

Steve Cooper talks with actor Bill Brochtrup. Bill was originally cast for just two episodes of NYPD Blue during the show's second season. However, when his splendid portrayal of P.A.A. John Irvin won over the show's producers and audience alike, he was invited to reprise the very same role in comedy series Public Morals and two years later he returned to NYPD Blue as Irvin, and continued to be a much-loved character for 8 seasons. His other TV roles include shows such as Murder, She Wrote, Dharma & Greg, Without a Trace, Dexter, Kendra plus recurring roles in Shameless and Major Crimes.

The State of Shakespeare

The Antaeus Theater Co. April 21, 2015 Bill Brochtrup joins the State of Shakespeare to talk the 99 seat theater plan and it's future in Los Angeles, The Antaeus Company and the benefits of partner casting.Antaeus is a cooperative theater ensemble founded to empower the actor and to bring classical theater to Los Angeles. The company exists to create a family of artists and audiences and is dedicated to exploring stories with enduring themes. Taking their company name from the Titan who gained strength by touching the Earth, Antaeus members — many of whom are familiar to film and television audiences — regain their creative strength by returning to the wellspring of their craft: live theater. Members of the company span a wide range of age, ethnicity and experience; they have performed on Broadway, at major regional theaters across the country, in film, television and on local stages, and are the recipients of numerous accolades including Tony, Los Angeles and New York Drama Critics Circle, Ovation, LA Weekly, and Back Stage Garland nominations and awards. Audiences, who never see an understudy due to Antaeus’ trademark “partner casting,” frequently return to see the same play in the hands of an equally excellent but very different set of actors.
