Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winner Michael Cristofer joins Justin to talk about his amazingly diverse career, his new play, “Man in the Ring,” which opens Saturday night at the Court Theatre in Hyde Park, how he became interested in the story, working on the highly acclaimed show “Mr. Robot,” what attracted him to his role on “Mr. Robot,” approaching ‘evil’ as an actor, the success of the show and the Emmy Award win for Rami Malek, the role that frustration plays in the life of a creative person and the similarity and differences between his artistic pursuits.
