NH Unscripted with Marc Murai

Time to talk about Barnum and 1776.

Episode 87
45 min / Published

Emmy award winner Marc Murai dropped by to chat about what he’s up to lately and brought a guest with him: Andrew Pinard of the Hatbox Theatre. I was interested to discuss his attempt to purchase the Ioka theatre in Exeter NH and what the final result was of the attempted purchase. I also wanted to pick his brain about two of his productions that took place in the Hatbox, “Barnum” and “1776”. “Barnum” won several awards the year it was staged and “1776” was a herculean lift since the cast alone called for 24 men! Each performance was wall to wall people! Andrew gave us a little more info on the impending closure of the Hatbox and all 3 of us discuss the impact that will have of the local economy, artists, playwrights, etc.

Show notes

The Casting Connection is the ONLY place stage actors should be seeking out new auditions. It's powerful, extremely well thought out and unbelievably easy to use.
