Twice a month on the Token Theatre Friends video series and podcasts, theatre critic Jose Solís and guests bring a POC perspective to the performing arts.
This week Jose sits with Mamie Parris and Mauricio Martínez, stars of Unmasked: The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, a musical biography of the famed composer, making its world premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse. Parris and Martínez (he’s our first repeat guest!) share their memories of encountering ALW’s music and explain how getting to work with the composer helped them understand his songs better. And they discuss how they really feel about the Cats movie.
The audio of the interview is also available on the podcast.
