Original Airdates: Feb. 21-23, 2020
TVC 481.4: Ed welcomes back stage and TV actor Stacy Keach (Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, Titus, Man with a Plan). Topics include how Stacy’s love of radio dramas helped inspire him to become an actor; why humor is the best way to approach the humanity of a character; and why the works of Mary Shelley, Rod Serling, and Bob Kane have all stood the test of time.
Stacy Keach will be starring as The Creature in an original adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, produced by L.A. Theater Works, that will be recorded live in front of an audience for future radio broadcast at UCLA’s James Bridges Theatre on Friday, Feb. 28, Saturday, Feb. 29 and Sunday, March 1. There will be two performances on Saturday, Feb. 29, one of which is a matinee that will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Leslie S. Klinger, author of The New Annotated Frankenstein. If you listen to us to in the L.A. area, and would like to attend one of the recordings, call 310-827-0889 or go to www.latw.org for tickets and more information
