BWW Interview: Ana Gasteyer on the Grueling Differences Between WICKED and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, 'Meditation' of Live Theatre, and Her Café Carlyle Debut
by Casey Mink - Oct 25, 2016

Gasteyer has also had extensive success in the concert capacity, and she is now preparing for a major milestone in any solo performer's career: her debut at the Cafe Carlyle. BroadwayWorld spoke with Gasteyer ahead of her Carlyle shows, the first of which is on October 25, about the differences between SNL and eight shows a week (both are grueling, but disparately so), why she yearns for the emotional connection of performing live, and whether or not Donald Trump makes her miss being in the trenches of live comedy.
