Earlier this month we got an opportunity to sit down and shoot the breeze with our first Tony/Pulitzer Prize winning interview subject. Playwright Doug Wright was in Seattle to attend the opening night for his play, “I Am My Own Wife” at Seattle Repertory Theatre and we snagged an opportunity to sit down with him and chat about ALL sorts of delightful things…like, movie plans for “Wife”; what it’s like to see yourself portrayed on stage; the tininess of Nick Garrison’s waist and some of the projects he’s working on for the future, including writing the book for a new musical about the rivalry between Helena Rubinstein and Estée Lauder. It’s dishy and fun and Mr. Wright was a delight to talk to. Check it out!
AND, also note that “I Am My Own Wife” has been extended at the Rep…the production has been so popular, it will now run until March 10, 2012. You should also be aware that as of 12:30pm February 27th, there are only HANDFULS of seats still available for this amazing show. My advice would be to immediately head over to the Seattle Rep website to try and grab any seats remaining.
Also note the fine videography and editing work of Mr. Wes Hurley. AND, check out our previous interview with the star and director of “I Am My Own Wife”, Nick Garrison and Jerry Manning, HERE!
