Name: Ben Davis
What is your current project?
Lenny Bruce is Not Afraid
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
I’m currently producing for my friend Mark at Studio 353, West 48th Street. He has some subtle and not-so-subtle references to this year and the election, as well as a different take on the exploration of relationships. It fits with some of my personal attitudes and I both enjoy and have performed some very dark roles, so I compliment the team well.
What’s next for you?
Getting Artists Produced “Socials” (GAPS)
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?
