[Interview with John Mahoney about Steppenwolf’s The Dresser]

Actor John Mahoney is interviewed about his role in the Steppenwolf production of The Dresser, which ran from September 16 - November 14th, 2004. Synopsis from Steppenwolf: "In Britain during the Blitz, a traveling theater company prepares to perform King Lear while Sir (John Mahoney), the actor in the title role, is spiraling into madness. Sir’s devoted dresser, Norman (Tracy Letts), would do anything to help lift his fallen monarch for one last stage triumph. The tragicomedy by Ronald Harwood, the Oscar-winning writer of The Pianist, is performed on an innovative set by Santo Loquasto, a long-time collaborator with Woody Allen. With a cast assembled of some of Chicago’s most esteemed actors, Steppenwolf’s The Dresser is a hilarious and heartbreaking tale of life in the theater performed by those who’ve spent a life in the theater."
