This week, Ira spoke with Cindy Williams.
Cindy Williams will be performing in the world premiere of MIDDLETOWN, a play about love, life, and friendship, debuting at Myron’s Cabaret Jazz at The Smith Center March 31-April 1 for four performances.
In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Williams talks about the origins of her sense of humor, starting with her family dynamic; her decision to become a nurse (which didn’t happen); her entry into show business; the impact of “Laverne and Shirley” on her career and its enduring appeal; and the importance of the audience to a play (she considers the audience the other “character” in the play).
MIDDLETOWN is launched by GFour Productions, producers of Menopause The Musical and Tony-nominated Fiddler On The Roof in partnership with Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and Delaware Theatre Company of Wilmington, Deleware. In addition to Cindy Williams, the cast includes Didi Conn (Frenchy the beauty school dropout in “Grease”); Donny Most, known for his role as Ralph Malph in the hit TV show “Happy Days”; and Adrian Zmed, best known for his starring roles in the “Bachelor Party” and TV’s “T.J. Hooker.”
