041 - Let’s Sit Crooked and Talk Straight (feat. Elizabeth Ashley) / by Steven Ferezy

We are in the room with the legendary Elizabeth Ashley (Russian Doll! Barefoot in the Park! Take Her, She’s Mine! Evening Shade! You Can’t Take It With You!). Our friend Liz is absolute royalty in the American Theatre and we are so very honored to have gotten her “on the mic” for your listening pleasure. Liz is currently playing Ruth -the therapist - in the series Russian Doll on Netflix, which premiered to unanimous applause. We get her take on modern life, shooting the series all over NYC, keeping “the goddamn loops” straight, and the glorious differences of working on a female driven set. She then takes us on a wild ride from her early days in New York at the Neighborhood Playhouse (with fellow classmates Robert Redford and Candice Bergen) and her Broadway debut, to Neil Simon writing "Barefoot in the Park" for her, and beyond… hosting SNL during Eddie Murphy’s rise, her year as a ship’s captain, friendships with Penny Fuller, Lucille Ball & Joan Rivers, recalling Agnes of God, the on-set fun during Evening Shade with Burt Reynolds and Michael Jeter, and so much more. We’ll have what Ms. Ashley is having.
