Of a salesman a classic -- -- play which is already breaking. Box office records even though it's only in previous. It opens on March 15 for a sixteen week limited engagement we're delighted to have you back when -- -- -- as a custodian a break already Saturday in April of got -- magnate signals you're one who has everything. We we we do it justice -- material to build a good I've -- heard great things especially from one of our family members Mike Nichols and this is director of course married to. Diane Sawyer -- and it's a wonderful things to say about you say that you have a commanding. Presence if you are a true talented dedicated actor was like work with Monica legend. Those single poll this month both as a -- look at us and let us no. It was -- you know it's it's a dream it's it's it's. It's who we were just talking before and it's like I just don't talk about I don't think about it analyst Philip Purcell did not it's it's hard to. Instead it's hard to accept -- -- he noted how how lucky I have to be in a room with a nightly. And I -- on this directive and as a human being. And you -- -- -- and and and Diana's -- and have both come from the same. Humanitarian closed with a beautiful thing I already feel the same way about that we do. Your character. And I think -- -- and Andrew that the audience control -- Relate well why don't like this tell people are not familiar with the -- about your cares about them. About the -- it's a big one right now it's it's and it's very patents and -- It's about so many things is very very difficult to sum up I think. It was that the that the plane -- so many different levels of conscious unconscious conscious and. And it's it's I think one of the main things about this is that. He's trying to find himself and I think we can all relate to -- I think. It's and in its its. It's it's it's it's it's impossible for me to -- -- a but but it just just it's a very it's a very modern plane somehow. Even though it was written in 1948. 49.

And then your dad has played by another under other than Philip Seymour Hoffman the man who is such you talk about a dedicated actor and I I know that he gave you some. -- -- shared some things that you really appreciated as an actor you know I think you think again in the same in the same vendors. As being with Mike Wakefield. Has. Such a sure indication -- work and -- -- for them. And that the correct reasons from my own perspective like he's he's he he he doesn't he he puts limits how -- -- Christmas golf. Because of his color and walks home. -- -- subway and it. He shows -- but what can never stops. Searching and attention to discover and he's an artist and I think. An act of being an -- that -- understand -- feels like a rarity so when you win when you see that when -- -- it's kind of like -- you're drawn to Milan anyway. You know you kind of -- -- what -- you can from -- Until which is also incredibly talented obviously a moment how to -- -- and it's time we have left Spiderman. And I want that. The first time you put on. -- don't bet it was a mixed it was a mixed among them didn't have to say it was it was. Incorporated -- Overwhelming calls. I didn't quite good I -- because you know one amazing thing. About Spider-Man is very severe that he causing skin color. And so I think that's why he's so kind of universally relatable -- of course Batman you can see it's a white guy -- it whenever. And I think went with I didn't like me in this those income liberating about and that's pretty happy to talk of feels as well he's like normal -- -- this I can be. Whenever I need to be a whatever I want to be and that creates mischief that creates it's it's that -- -- -- talk about what does -- -- -- and fun role to play you were born here in the states for -- and England's and you have the English accent when you play Spider-Man known and that would -- so it would spend spend that kind of blasphemous but -- that. No no no no I'm might might does who has his -- I feel like I've the -- -- -- -- can accept credit my hero my life removed. So so yes -- -- I've kind of been -- some -- troops. But queens kind of -- as possible what we're looking for Nevada and also death -- a salesman had always a general manager thank you very necessary thank you for having me -- this success at all that you do.
