Kahnversations Podcast

New "Kahnversations" Podcast with Actor
Ginifer King!


In this installation of "Kahnversations," we interview Ginifer King. For the past few years, Ginifer has played the frazzled, big city in a small town single mother Michelle Hathaway on Nickelodeon’s THE HAUNTED HATHAWAYS. She began her career at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where she was discovered by NYC casting director Jim Carnahan who cast her in the upcoming Broadway revival of GYPSY, starring Bernadette Peters and directed by Sam Mendes. Ginifer went on to play the title role of Gypsy Rose Lee numerous times opposite Ms. Peters. Other Broadway credits include Shelby in STEEL MAGNOLIAS, opposite Delta Burke and Christine Ebersole, and as Sister Claire in CYRANO DE BERGERAC with Kevin Kline, who also, incidentally, was her Secret Santa that year. She’s done Off-Broadway, she’s done 29-hour readings, she’s done all the LAW & ORDERs – basically, she did NYC. After moving to LA, she guest starred on numerous network procedurals as mistresses, embezzling secretaries and, of course, serial killers. For the past five years she has simultaneously been a part of the LA based company “For the Record”, a live - 360 degree theatrical experience bringing the movies of such directors as Tarantino, Baz Lurhmann, the Coen Brothers, and Scorsese to life through their soundtracks. She spent this past summer performing the FOR THE RECORD: BAZ show, partnered with Cirque de Soleil. She entered from the ceiling on a swing and there was glitter involved – she was in heaven.

So many inspiring podcasts out there allow us to hear all about how well-established stars got to where they are today. But those actors are so faaaaaaar away from where so many of us are today! Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in the hills?

We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.

In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.
