    Eight year old Kate Seipert was making her exit in her 4H club’s annual show when she spontaneously made a face that caused the audience to break up with laughter. That moment in the spotlight was suspended in time for little Kate and she knew that being on stage and making people laugh was what she wanted to do. She’s pursed this goal with a vengeance. She got her BFA from Wesleyan then became a member of Chicago’s prestigious Improv Olympic (now known as IO). She went to London to study at one of England’s most respected acting schools, and finally took the scary plunge; a move to New York City. Currently she is breaking us up as part of the ensemble cast of Perfect Wedding, a delicious farce which is the opening show at the almost newly renovated Gomperz Theater – a part of the Florida Studio Theater Complex. Listen to the still exuberant, passionate and funny Kate Seipert and run down to see what her moment in the spotlight and vigorous training have accomplished.

    10-4-11 Re-broadcast of Interview with Dick Smothers – Part 1

    While I am in New York doing follow up interviews with the Cast and Creative Team of Bonnie and Clyde the Musical – which opens on Broadway December 2, 2011. I am re-broadcasting two of my favorite shows, both with the delightful Dickie Smothers. At the beginning of both shows I am talking about Brain Chemistry and how the chemicals our brain drops into our blood stream, cause us to think, feel and act in ways which, while once appropriate, even self-defensive, may have now become counterproductive. And what we can do about it.

    Interview – with actor, comedian, independent film maker Robert Mann, who discovered the magic of, and actually appeared in a film at 8 years old (at least his feet appeared), when he accompanied his mother to the film set of a director she was dating. Hear how he spent virtually every waking minute of his childhood experimenting with film, and how he pulled off his first independent horror film “Pumpkin Man,” and he may now actually be beginning to make money.
