Marry Your Best Friend: An Interview With Christy Brandt & John Gary Brown
Show Notes

In our 11 years of marriage we have learned a lot about what make a marriage tick, but in so many unforeseen ways we are mere novices.

With that in mind, we are thrilled to have our first guests on Mess Is More.

This week, we sit down with our dear friends, Christy Brandt and John Gary Brown. They have been married for over 40 years, and together for 50. They share some wonderful stories about what it takes to get messy over the long haul. We could have talked with them for hours, because their insight is poignant, touching, and a goddamn delight.

As longtime company members at Creede Repertory Theatre, they have some amazing insight into what it take to not only stick it out for the long haul, but how to make a fulfilling life in the arts, where both are able to find their joy in their artistic endeavors.

Listen now, to learn about marrying your best friend, and what it means to break the script about what a traditional marriage should look like.

This episode is not to be missed.

Great News! We're performing a benefit concert for one night only called Mess Is More: The Musical. All your favorite hot marriage content...but with songs.
