Classic Stage Company Will Stream Their "Conversations With..." the cast of Assassins

The Classic Stage Company was meant to produce Assassins this Spring, but obviously cannot due to the NY Theater lockdown. However, they have decided to stream a unique feature of their company which I think you will love. During this time when live performance with an audience is not possible, Classic Stage has begun producing new Classic Conversations online, short versions of the popular one-on-one conversation series between NYC's leading actors and their wonderful Artistic Director, John Doyle. Each conversation is an engaging peek into the life and career of the actor, and includes performances of songs that are especially meaningful to them, in a "Desert Island Discs" format (for you BBC Radio fans).

Their current virtual Classic Conversations are focused on the cast of Assassins, with new episodes premiering every Thursday at 6 pm ET on Facebook and YouTube. Previous conversations with Brandon Uranowitz and Will Swenson were delightful. Tavi Gevinson will chat with John on Thursday. 

I happened to see their conversation with Michael Cerveris live and it was a ton of fun. He shared great stories about the shows he has been in, his co-stars and throughout Mr. Cerveris sang songs that were meaningful to him.

To watch live or later on, visit CSC's Facebook page at or the Classic Stage Company channel on YouTube. And for more information and the upcoming schedule, visit

I hope you will find the Classic Conversations a welcome reminder of what to look forward to when our theaters are able to open their doors again. And if you enjoy them and are able, please consider supporting CSC at Like most not-for-profit theater companies, Classic Stage is utterly reliant on community, government and philanthropic support while its seats remain empty.
