Back to One

A podcast about acting -- just the work. by Peter Rinaldi

Back to One, Episode 205: David Morse

David Morse is one of the most respected veteran actors working in the business. St. Elsewhere, The Indian Runner, The Crossing Guard, Dancer In The Dark, House, Hack, The Green Mile, to name just a few of his past credits, and now a Tony nomination for his incredibly powerful performance in How I Learned To Drive, which he has reprised with Mary-Louise Parker 25 years after they first did it off-Broadway. I talk to him about the differences in these two incarnations, particularly one important and significant moment he arrives at toward the end of the play. He explains how training with William Esper enriched his work, how working for Sean Penn invigorated it, and how the “all in it together” aspect of theater continues to feed him. Plus much more!
