INTERVIEW: Henry Lewis & Jonathan Sayer Chat "Mind Mangler" Now Running Off-Broadway
On Tuesday November 7, I attended the press day for the new Off-Broadway show "Mind Mangler: A Night of Tragic Illusion" now playing at New World Stages. They presented a bit from the show to members of the press at Sardi's on the 3rd floor.
Below are my interviews with Jonathan Sayer and Henry Lewis (the Mind Mangler) as they chat about the show, what we can expect, and why your mind will be BLOWN AWAY!
From the minds that brought The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong to Broadway comes the hilarious new comedy by Mischief. Join the “Mind Mangler” as he returns to the stage following a disappointing two-night run at the Scranton, PA Holiday Inn Conference Center, suite 2B. His new two-man show solo spectacular is predicted to spiral into chaos as he attempts to read your MIND…
