The Amazing Mike Nussbaum, Still At It!

A beautiful profile in The New York Times today about the great Chicago actor, Mike Nussbaum, appearing now at The Goodman Theatre in Noah Haidle’s Smokefall (which I hope to see when I’m out there). Mike’s been on a non-stop streak of great performances in big productions, intimate Off-Loop venues, musicals at Navy Pier; the actors gamut. Our memories are still fresh from his 2011 residency with us in Imaging Madoff. You’ll remember the fun we had with that (and all the dramas around Deb Margolin’s premiere, and all the joys of finally sharing the production, directed so beautifully by Alexandra Aron, and co-starring Rick Foucheux and Jennifer Mendenhall. Here’s a perfect complement to the Times profile; our own DC Theatrescene’s 2011 interview with Mike.

Here’s a salute to one of the greats, in every way!
