On this podcast, we are joined by Two Walkens: Susanne Collins and Kevin Meehan. We talk about the origins of the devised theater performance duo’s mashup, explore some iconic standouts from Christopher Walken’s expansive body of work, and we even get a sample of the show.
Two Walkens, a world premiere, takes a few of Walken’s best-known big- and small-screen appearances, and combines them with Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic children’s book The Little Prince to see if this town really is big enough for the both of them. The show asks the timely question “How do we cope when the world outside gets to be too tough to handle?” Pick your weapon of choice.
Collins and Meehan are Philly theater veterans, but this is their first creation together.
