In the complete conversation, Kudisch and I analyze all aspects of his brand new Broadway hit HAND TO GOD and parse the finer points of the religion-themed comedy as well as touch on his thoughts on the daring, thought-provoking and edgy Robert Askins play, with today's preview touching on many of the themes of the piece, the importance of the play's message to a modern audience, an exhaustive analysis of the character dynamics that exist in this world and what initially drew Kudisch to the idiosyncratic project in the first place, as well as how it has changed throughout the course of its run Off-Off-Broadway to Off-Broadway to Broadway. Additionally, in the full chat, Kudisch and I look back at some of his most notable roles, as well, ranging from THE WILD PARTY to 9-TO-5 to his recent Shakespeare turn opposite Paul Giamatti in HAMLET and stint on Netflix's hit drama series HOUSE OF CARDS as well as much more.
