New Interview

K72A7000.CR2I’m planning to attend an evening vocal performance by Academy Award-winning actress Mary Steenburgen, whom I recently interviewed for The New Romanticist, at Herb Alpert’s jazz club Vibrato in Bel Air. I’m looking forward to hearing her sing live for the first time.

I first met Ms. Steenburgen, whose work in pictures I’ve long admired, at an event in Beverly Hills a couple of years ago when she co-wrote a song for Melissa Manchester for an independent movie called Dirty Girl. We subsequently did a three-way interview with Ms. Manchester, which rolled off of our tongues (read the 2011 interview here).

After seeing Mary Steenburgen perform in the new movie Last Vegas, I started to think about what it must be like to make a major career change later in life. I know something about this issue, so my recent conversation with Mary Steenburgen was personally relevant, too.
