#42: Hannah Chase
On this week's episode, Magnet performer, director, and instructor Hannah Chase joins us to talk about improv, self-criticism, and why everyone should see a therapist. Host Louis Kornfeld asks Hannah about her upcoming Directors Series, "The Cast," and forthcoming elective class, "Play!" Both projects remind host and guest alike that sometimes the easiest way to participate in something you enjoy is to create it yourself. Find out how playing piano in her younger years has influenced Hannah's approach to improv and the role that self-criticism plays in both. Louis offers that we replace the concept of failure in improv with that of uncertainty and also urges us to find in our neighbors what we find fascinating in ourselves. Plus, both Hannah and Louis attempt to appease demands made by Peter McNerney and Ed Herbstman, to great success. Check it out!
