Something New - a musical theatre podcast
Episode 213 - Matt WilsonMay 05, 2014 Joel B. New
JBN sat down with Matt Wilson, to whom James Lapine told he was 'suis generis'. It sounds like a hog call, but it's Latin and means 'of its own kind or class; not like anything else'. Matt applied to med school and clown college. He wanted to be a doctor. Or a clown, and chronicles his inner clown-flict in his neo-vaudevillian live solo theatrical spectacle 'Clown Baggage', where med school and clown college collide in a hilarious and virtuosic display of sideshow stunts, burlesque, circus feats, comedy and pathos (www.clownbaggage.com). From his Emmy award winning turn on the PBS Kids television favorite 'Cyberchase', to galavanting the globe with the Britney Spears 'Circus', to leading ninjas on the path towards health and hotness as a trainer at Mark Fisher Fitness in Hell's Kitchen, Matt inadvertently defies categorization. Song Presentation: "Sense of You" from Joel B. New's TO HELL AND BACK. Recorded @ TruVoice Studios on 5/4/14.
