by Pat Cerasaro - October 14, 2013

Today we are talking to a spectacularly talented screenwriter and bookwriter known for his legendary string of onscreen collaborations with Woody Allen as well as for writing and directing films himself in addition to penning the Best Musical Tony Award-winner JERSEY BOYS and others - the accomplished and entertaining Marshall Brickman. Discussing bringing the tale of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons via JERSEY BOYS to the stage as well as the new big screen movie musical adaptation that just wrapped production, Brickman outlines his role in the international stage sensation and what we can expect from the highly anticipated celluloid creation on the way in 2014. Besides JERSEY BOYS, Brickman also sheds some light on the ongoing success of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, touring the country and performed around the world. Plus, Brickman shares first details on his new musical project, a biomusical based on the life of legendary 20th century American entertainer Roy Rogers. Additionally, Brickman details the finer points of his decades-spanning collaboration with Woody Allen on an incomparable assortment of modern comedy classics, including MANHATTAN, SLEEPER, MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY and the iconic, Best Picture Academy Award-winning Annie Hall, for which he and Allen received the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. All of that, reflections on his early career working in the Golden Age of television with legends like Johnny Carson and Dick Cavett and comments on some of his own projects as a writer/director like bringing Christopher Durang's SISTER MARY EXPLAINS IT ALL to the small screen, as well as how his banjo playing figures into a classic DELIVERANCE Hollywood moment, developing a new The Mamas & The Papas biopic - and much, much more!
