DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the LA LGBT Center's Davidson/Valentini Theater to talk to Jon Imparato and Adam Silver, producers of the powerful play "Exit Strategy," about one Chicago high school's fight for survival. Adam also stars in the show as school's in-over-his-head Vice Principal. The pair talk about what drew them to the play, how they found their powerhouse cast, why the show speaks so powerfully to this moment, and why Chicago actors rock. They also talk about the gay content in the show, playing befuddlement, using Pfeiffer as a verb and what they hope audiences take away from the show. Jon and Adam both pull questions from the Observation Deck which leads to stories involving school lunches, Hitchcock damage, Goldie Hawn, Liza Minnelli, Dustin Hoffman and turning 60 in Venice, Italy.
