Interview: Mike Nussbaum and Coburn Goss

This week’s podcast features actors Mike Nussbaum and Coburn Goss, who are currently playing in Mark St. Germain’s two-hander, Freud’s Last Session, at The Mercury Theatre. Anne Nicholson Weber talks to Mike and Coburn about the challenges of playing historical figures Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis, of taking over the roles from the New York actors who opened the production here in Chicago, the response of the audience to this play of ideas, and observations on the art of acting.
