Studio Tenn Talks with Patrick Cassidy

Join us Sunday at 7 PM as Patrick welcomes Jason Alexander and Ernie Nolan! Though best known for his award-winning, nine-year stint as the now-iconic George Costanza of television’s Seinfeld, Jason Alexander has achieved international recognition for a career noted for its extraordinary diversity from lauded performances on stage, screen and television to his extensive works as a writer, composer, director, producer and acting teacher. Jason began as a teenager doing commercials for television and radio. While still in college, he made his Broadway debut in the original cast of the Hal Prince/Stephen Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along. He continued starring on Broadway in the original casts of Kander and Ebb’s The Rink, Neil Simon’s Broadway Bound, Rupert Holmes’ Accomplice, and his Tony Award-winning performance in Jerome Robbin’s Broadway. Jason also authored the libretto for that show, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical. His many films include Pretty Woman, Jacob’s Ladder, Love Valor Compassion, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Dunston Checks In, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Shallow Hal. Additionally, he directed the feature films For Better or Worse and Just Looking. He also directed television episodes of Seinfeld, Til Death, Everybody Hates Chris, Mike and Molly, Criminal Minds, and Franklin & Bash. His direction of Brad Paisley’s “Online” video won him a Country Music Award. Ernie Nolan is an award-winning playwright, director, and choreographer. He received the Illinois Theatre Association’s 2014 award for Excellence in Theatre for Young Audiences. As former Artistic Director of Emerald City Theatre, he helped create The Little Theatre, the nation’s first performance space dedicated exclusively to interactive and immersive theatrical experiences for early theatre goers ages five and under. Nolan’s work as a playwright has been featured both nationally and internationally. He has adapted and directed such storybook favorites as If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, If You Take a Mouse to School, Mo Willems’ Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, and The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle.

So excited to see this interview with Norm Lewis. Watched him in Spike Lee's new film, Da 5 Bloods yesterday (he's excellent) and saw him in Porgy and Bess on Broadway years ago (LOVED that production and him). BIG FANS! You're offering such a unique gift with these talks, Studio Tenn. Thank you.
