A few minutes with George Wendt

Scott Jagow Feb 24, 2009

There’s a new musical here in LA that’s set in the ummm… yeah… Great Depression. But it’s fun. And a little naughty. “Minsky’s” is about a real New York City burlesque show from the ’30’s. Burlesque was a hot ticket in those times because it was much cheaper than Broadway. Of course, not everyone thought it was proper, and so, the story unfolds.

One of the performers in Minsky’s is actor George Wendt. Yes, “Norm” from Cheers…

A very likeable fellow. I got a chance to sit down with George, and you can listen to the interview here:
