Three on the Aisle: Patrick Page Goes Deep

This month the critics talk to the star of ‘Hadestown’ about darkness and empathy, and share their theatregoing highlights.

Once a month, Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal; Elisabeth Vincentelli, contributor to The New York Times and The New Yorker; and Peter Marks of the Washington Post get together to talk about what’s going on in the American theatre.

With the reopening of Broadway, we’re excited to welcome Broadway actor Patrick Page to the podcast. He talks with us about illuminating humanity in dark characters, the role of empathy in acting and in life, and how he’s feeling about returning to the title role in Hadestown. The critics wrap up with their picks: Neal Brennan’s Unacceptable, Westport Country Playhouse’s archival film Of Mice and Men, and The Lion King on Broadway.
