Episode 501. Thaddeus And Slocum

Published by austin on

Thaddeus and Slocum: A Vaudeville Adventure is a great new comedy by Kevin Douglas having its world premiere at the Lookingglass Theatre Company in an amazing production directed by J. Nicole Brooks and Krissy Vanderwarker. Kevin talks about the inspiration for this new work and reflects about a misspent youth watching old movies, the value of outside eyes, the dangers of getting stuck in acting mode, the beauty of the “showmance”, the richness of history, the defiance of easy labels, and the wonders of writing to a specific ensemble.
