Interview with Phillip Kan Gotanda and Ubuntu Artistic Director Michael Moran

Playwright Phillip Kan Gotanda, Artistic Director of the Ubuntu Theater Project Michael Socrates Moran, and I got together to talk before the opening of Gotanda's new play for Ubuntu, Pool of Wonders: Undertow of the Soul. We talked about theater audiences, producing, Andrei Tarkovsky's 1979 film Stalker, the presence of violence in Gotanda's work, and a few hopes and dreams for the American Theater. In the end, Gotanda can't resist recreating a sound effect from Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.
