Interview: Tristan Brandon, Curtis Jackson & Andrew Lund

This week’s podcast focuses on the Idle Muse Theatre Company’s production of Shakespeare’s R & J, which is currently playing at The Side Project. Director Tristan Brandon and cast members Curtis Jackson and Andrew Lund join host Anne Nicholson Weber to talk about their approach to the verse and how it was affected by the adaptor’s conceit that the play is being performed by four school boys; and also about the casting process and how a newly-arrived actor integrates into the Chicago theatre scene.
