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.
