In this episode, the two Matts are cut in half by Matt David not being present (not as in their bodies literally being cut in half), bring in one of Matt Donald's friends from the theater/theatre business, woe about the lack of financial support society has for creative minds, and talk about theater management and all the tricks and trade in the field. What are the job specifics of a theater manager? How much of an active role do they have? How do they utilize their creative minds for the job? How many angry fan letters will the show get for daring to make fun of certain fans of the new Joker movie? We discuss it all, before giving a company bow at the end for a cheering audience, and talk about A Christmas Carol, the Drowsy Chaperone, a bit on Beauty and the Beast, and the aforementioned Joker (which isn't a stage play... yet. Don't give Warner Brothers any ideas!) Have any feedback or questions for our hosts?
