Episode 11: Michael Strassen

In Episode 10 of his new podcast TAKE IT FROM THE TOP, Dana speaks with Michael Strassen about:

  • How he tackled persistent stage fright as an actor
  • Why context is everything
  • The “mind experiment” that happens between the audience and the actors each time a show is performed, and what the director’s role is in bringing that about
  • What he looks for when casting a show
  • “The feeling of eternity” he experienced while directing Ruthie Henshall
  • The “ghost in the room”
  • Why Meryl Streep is on his “bucket list” of 10 people with whom he’d want to have dinner
