Let’s Get Serious with Mandy Whitenack

Off Off Broadzway perform “almost sexy sketch comedy” that’s sort of a musical parody of burlesque.

They have a new run of shows coming up at Stage 773 so I sat down with Mandy Whitenack to discuss her character, Ricki Dickyouless.

She tells me about eating dirt as a baby, Indiana’s Pizza King, Flat Top Grill and early musical theater experiences.

Show Notes
• The new Off Off Broadzway show, We Changed Our Pannies! will be performed Thursdays at 8pm from April 28–May 19, 2011 at Stage 773.

• “Pannies” is slang for “underwear”.

Pizza King is a chain in Indiana.

The Hudsucker Proxy is my favorite Coen Brothers film. Check out this clip I was referencing about the Muncie Eagles.

• I tried to find out calorie info for Flat Top Grill’s Roti Prata Flatbread but all I could find was this extremely incomplete Nutritional Information.

• Mandy also performs every Saturday night at 10:30pm with The Cupid Players at iO.

• I previously interviewed a few of the other Broadz: Let’s Get Serious with Kelly Bolton (Episode 002), Let’s Get Serious with Liz McArthur (Episode 004)

• I directed Mandy in this  “Broadz Bitch” Music Video.

One thought on “Let’s Get Serious with Mandy Whitenack

  1. I like that in the first five minutes of almost each one of these you have to tell your guest that “this is a place of honesty”.

    Maybe tell them you’re “serious” BEFORE you start…
