Interview with Richard B. Watson
Luckily for him, Richard B. Watson‘s parents were a patient audience for their two year olds replaying of everyday’s Sesame Street. This went on for years as Richard enhanced his performances with lights, sounds, puppets etc. What then could Richard be, but an actor? Having just appeared in the American Stage Theater production of Daphne du Maurier’s thriller The Birds, Richard can next be seen at the Orlando Shakespeare Theater in a production of Nicholas Nickleby, a two play 6 hour tour de force January 22 – March 9, 2014. Listen to the story of how he went from a precocious toddler to a working actor, and hear him tell the story of learning to perform with a peg leg on a stage filled with stairs in his role as Captain Hook in the first production of Treasure Island A New Musical.
