When comedian Frank Ferrante suggested that he interview the legendary Tony Award-winner Liliane Montevecchi for a podcast for our audience, we leapt at the chance to listen in on a lively conversation between these two dynamic forces of nature.

Listen to the podcast:

Frank’s first opportunity to work with Liliane in the final show, “L’Affaire d’Amour” at our old location in Belltown back in 2007. In that show their characters rarely if ever interacted, but it didn’t matter – Frank was absolutely smitten by Liliane.

“She’s a master,” says Frank. “Here I am, an American actor specializing in brash comedy getting to play directly with an elegant, Parisian diva. When (director) Norm Langill suggested that we work together on a new show, I thought here’s my chance to work with one of the most talented people around. She’s an exacting performer and expects the very best from everyone and if you’re in the center ring with her, you better be able to keep up -and that to me was very exciting.”
