I had a chance to chat with Jennifer Ashley Tepper, who is Director of Programming at Feinstein's/54 Below and author of The Untold Stories of Broadway series. We discussed her upcoming book, how she comes up with shows for Feinstein’s/54 Below, and more.
Theo Stockman, aka Tim Price of American Psycho! We discussed his character, his patriotism, his inspiration, and more. Theo is extraordinarily talented and articulate, and I hope he comes back to Broadway quickly after American Psycho closes on June 5th.
