Jason Liebman is starring as Drew in the NYC premiere of Melissa Gawlowski’s SPRING TIDES, opening March 9th. Here’s a few questions for Jason…
Full Name: Jason Liebman
Home town: Montreal, QC Canada
Tell us a little about Drew… Drew is likely an alien. Possibly a cyborg. Maybe a creation of Jane’s (his “wife”) fertile imagination. He doesn’t really exist, exactly. He’s like an imaginary friend that could get you pregnant. With paper babies. Alien, cyborg, paper babies (yes, cyborg can be passed along genetically. fact.). We all know the type. Did i mention that he’s a nice guy? And totally sincere in his love of most things we’d be ironic in our love of. Also, he has seen post Peter Cetera Chicago on several occasions. Happily.
What is your favorite thing about working on Spring Tides? Rehearsing at Cap 21 studios with all its musical theatre madness. You can not overstate the awesomeness of stepping into a hallway filled with sung conversation. The dankness in the air, not so much.
What’s your favorite place in New York City? That’s ever-changing. Prospect Park’s pretty swell. I’m also a massive fan of the Ensemble Studio Theatre at Youngblood Brunch time. There’s a magic during those things that’s pretty unique. I don’t get there nearly often enough, but did recently and it was lightning-in-a-jar special.
Inspired by Smith and NPR, can you give us your 6 word memoir: Tried hard, ate good…what happened?
