Mr. Burns A Post-Electric Play's opening night is quickly approaching and with that we wanted to touch base with some of the faces that will appear on the stage. One of those faces will be Josh Waller, who was last seen on the Mainstage at PBTS in Angels in America. PBTS Blogger Sadie La Manna sat down with the actor to discuss his upcoming role in this post-electric tale. Take a peek!
1. Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric…can you describe what the title really means in terms of a description of the show?
The play is about how Americans entertain and sustain when the lights go out forever.
2. What attracted you to this play?
I read the play over a year ago and was first struck by its originality and how different it was from anything I’d ever read. I fell in love with the script immediately, and that love has only grown as we’ve gotten further into the rehearsal process.
3. Can you describe your role(s)?
My character is Gibson, who joins our group of survivors late in the first scene. He ultimately teaches the group how to use pop culture for fun and eventually for profit.
4. What has been the most challenging part of this process as an actor?
There is quite a bit of music in the show and as a musician who knows their way around a traditional musical, this music was extremely difficult!
5. In one sentence, describe what audiences might get from watching this show.
Audiences are going to get a truly entertaining evening at the theatre and will see a show unlike anything they’ve ever seen before!
