Welcome to another edition of The Roundtable on BroadwayWorld with film and Broadway star Michael Esper- now appearing in Appropriate over at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway. 

Many know Michael from rock & roll musicals like American Idiot, The Last Ship, and Lazarus, but he is also known for his TV work such as Nurse Jackie, Shades of Blue, and The Family. Speaking of family... you might not know that Michael’s family happen to be acting school legends. Michael’s father William Esper opened William Esper Studio, often ranked one of the top acting schools in the country. His mom Susanne also happens to be a master teacher. Our host Robert happens to be an alum of the school, so it is an Esper reunion on this week’s Roundtable. 

What was it like growing up with some of the finest acting teachers as parents? Does he still use the Meisner Technique he learned at the Studio in shows like Appropriate? 

We find out how his career came to be, the people that shaped him, and how he does what he does! Plus we shout out fellow Esper alum Eden Espinosa, now in Lempicka on Broadway!
