Vineyard Theatre
108 East 15th Street New York, NY 10003

Playwright and filmmaker Zach Helm ("Good Canary", screenwriter/director "Stranger than Fiction" and "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium") brings a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience to The Vineyard. Based on a method originated by pioneering author, actor, and storyteller Spalding Gray, Zach invites individual members of each evening's audience to be interviewed by him on stage. The result is an improvised, intimate, and immensely compelling evening that expands our perception of theatre and narrative. By turns lighthearted and moving, strange and surprising, INTERVIEWING THE AUDIENCE is a not-to-be-missed special event.
