I can completely identify with Matt Graham on at least one point: real men do indeed love cats (big shout-out to my man Compay).
Graham’s show, This Too Shall Suck, of which he is the writer and performer, was a standout in the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival, and now continues weekly at Soho Playhouse’s Huron Club.
The show is dark, autobiographical, incredibly personal…and funny. And yes, cats are involved.
Listen in to this episode of Go See a Show! as Matt talks about getting onstage for the first time in eight years, cats, and making theatre to connect with people (and maybe to meet women, too).

Last weekend, I interviewed my friend Catherine Mueller over afternoon tea (how adroit) as we discussed her new show Mary Poppins: A Show About Mary Poppins (yes, that’s the full title).
Listen in as Cat explains how her work in clowning influenced the creation of her one-woman show (featuring two people), and I learn that I’ve been pronouncing my friend’s name incorrectly for the past year.

Today, Go See a Show! is proud to present an interview with the fabulous actress Sylvia Milo. Her new solo show Mozart’s Sister can be seen this Saturday, October 29 at the United Solo Festival, 2PM at Theatre Row’s Studio Theater.
This is the U.S. premiere of the work, and features Sylvia in an incredible, massive, entire-stage-filling dress (seen in the photo above!), as well as music from composers Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen.
Mozart’s Sister comes highly recommended; and as of now, this is the only scheduled performance, so check it out if you can! Tickets are available at the United Solo Festival’s website.
