Ana Gasteyer

When: Sat., Nov. 8, 7:30 p.m. 2014

The Broadway @ Woodlawn Theatre Celebrity Series with XM Radio personality/host and pianist Seth Rudetsky kicks off with Saturday Night Live alumna Ana Gasteyer, best known for portraying a handful of original SNL characters, including operatic middle-school music teacher Bobbie Moughan-Culp and soft-spoken NPR co-host Margaret Jo McCullen (Schweddy balls, anyone?). On Broadway, Gasteyer has appeared in Wicked and The Threepenny Opera, among other plays. During the Celebrity Series, which will continue in 2015 with two-time Tony winner Christine Ebersole (Grey Gardens) and two-time Emmy winner Megan Mullally (Will and Grace), Rudetsky, a longtime friend of Gasteyer, will interview her about her life and career and accompany her on piano while she performs songs from her Broadway past as well as her debut album, I’m Hip, a compilation of some of her jazz favorites. “It’s going to be a really unusual, intimate and fun night of interviews and songs,” Gasteyer, 47, told the Current during a phone interview a few weeks ago. “It’s like an insider’s peek into the lives we live out here in New York. It’s very weird and unorthodox.” For a full version of our interview, visit sacurrent.com.
