Actor Brian Dennehy talking the meaning of art, explaining his passion for Eugene O’Neil and telling me my wife was more intelligent than me? Yeah, you could say I was pretty darn thrilled the whole time I got to share a stage with him.

Dennehy, of course, is in town to co-star with Nathan Lane in The Iceman Cometh, at the Goodman. Previews begin Saturday April 21. I can’t wait.

The next Interview Show is Thursday May 3, in Brooklyn, featuring interviews with writer Chuck Klosterman, Delocated star Jon Glaser and sex advice writers Em & Lo, plus music by Nova Social. More info here.
