Interviewed by Joel Markowitz
Marc Kudisch, last seen here as Darryl Van Horne in Signature’s Witches of Eastwick, is now appearing in The Glorious Ones at Lincoln Center. The musical recounts the true beginnings of Italy’s gift to theatre, the commedia del arte, which has been feeding comedies from Shakespeare to Mel Brooks to Saturday Night Live. “Great art loves to fail”, he says, talking about the love of risk found in the improvisational art. “Life is glorious.”
Appearing between shows, Kudisch talks about his love of Washington audiences, and hopes for Witches of Eastwick, and gives his view of the stage hands strike.

Thanks Joel! – Your podcast entices me to go see “The Glorious Ones.” (If I’m brave enough to attempt a trip to NYC anytime in the near future!) Marc Kudisch is fascinating as always – he speaks so passionately about whatever he is involved in, and he is so articulate about this project. How can you not get caught up in that enthusiasm for a show?! And after saying no way was he going to sing anything – we got to hear a (tiny) snippet of that Glorious voice! I’d see him in just about anything. Thanks for bringing a piece about the show to us.
Another great interview with Marc Kudisch, Joel!
