Once again, our title is misleading. NOT ONLY is this week’s show an interview with actor/director John Lacy (more about him in a second) but he is also bringing along Elizabeth Greer and Stephen Zimpel, two of the actors from his new web-series The Reveal. The Reveal, written and directed by Lacy, is about a man who finds his soul in peril as he sets out to redeem himself by saving the lives of those who wronged him. The first of thirteen episodes were released starting January 30th and are available to view on their website www.therevealseries.com.
John Lacy has had a long and varied career in Hollywood appearing in everything from Doogie Howser, M.D. to Matlock to NYPD Blue to Sons of Anarchy. Last year, however, was a time when Lacy garnered the most notoriety of his career for something that happened during a stage production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Lacy was fired from the production, in which he was playing the patriarch “Big Daddy” in Tennessee Williams’ classic play that deals with (among other things) homophobia. Breaking character during the production, Lacy physically removed an unruly audience member from the theater who had been continuously lobbing anti-gay slurs at a cast member during the production.
Lacy’s immediate dismissal caused a rift in the acting community as to the proper way to deal these situations and was covered by arts reporters from all over the world. So what does an actor do when they come under criticism (and heaps of praise) for something they have done? Well, they act… and in this case, write and direct. We will be talking with our guests about their careers, their choices and their new, exciting show The Reveal.
