Check out the latest episode of the NYCPlaywrights Podcast - this time on the theme of The Supernatural.
In this episode we:
- talk to Professor James Shapiro about the Scottish play - you can see his BBC series on Shakespeare during the reign of King James online here;
- explore aspects of Orson Welles infamous version of World of the Wars, including his interview with H. G. Wells which was recorded in 1940 - both men try to downplay the panic response to the broadcast because Hitler was attempting to use it for anti-democracy propaganda;
- hear the reading of the very creepy LOVERBOY by Michael Jalbert and the interview with the playwright afterwards in which we talk about how Roy Cohn's career as a character in ANGELS IN AMERICA has evolved thanks to his connection to Donald Trump as well as how real life provides its own supernatural horror.
