Listen: Tony & Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan discusses “All the Way,” “Hacksaw Ridge,” and his missed opportunity with Alexander Hamilton.
“Today on Broadway” is a daily, Monday through Friday, podcast hitting the top theatre headlines of the day.
On this special Thanksgiving Day episode, Matt talks with Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan. They discuss the stage and screen success of Robert’s play “All the Way,” as well as his new movie “Hacksaw Ridge,” which stars Tony-nominee Andrew Garfield, and is directed by Academy Award winner Mel Gibson.
They also talk about Schenkkan’s father’s connection with President Johnson, “All the Way’s” includible leading man Bryan Cranston, the presidential election (which was about a month and a half away at the time they spoke), and the TV show “Gotham,” which stars his nephew Ben McKenzie.
