Podcast with Tony Award-winner Bob Martin

Bob Martin interview, performers podcast

For over three decades, Tony Award-winner Bob Martin has worked as an actor and writer. Early in his career, Martin was directing for Second City in Toronto. He’s also written for TV, with the Chicago Tribune calling “Slings and Arrows” “one of the most loving satires to have ever graced television.”

The first season of “Slings and Arrows” began streaming Monday on Acorn TV (Season 2 follows on Nov. 25, and Season 3 on Dec. 16).

In the podcast Martin notes that some of the show’s original creators are working on a prequel.

Despite the success of “Slings and Arrows” Martin is best known for writing and starring in the hilarious “The Drowsy Chaperone,” for which he won the 2006 Tony Award for “Best Book of a Musical.”

His most recent Broadway show, “The Prom,” won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical and received 7 Tony Award nominations.
In this episode we talk about:

  • How the revision process is crucial to a great script.
  • Working with Broadway’s best comic actors on “The Prom.”
  • Adapting “The Princess Bride” and “Night at the Museum” for Broadway.
  • The feelings that Martin experiences when he watches a performance of “The Drowsy Chaperone.”
