Spotlight On...Max Baker

Name: Max Baker

Hometown: London

Education: I received grants and scholarships, so I have no student debt

Favorite Credits: I love the credits at the end of "A Clockwork Orange"

Why theater?: My father was an actor. It seems a very natural place for me to be.

Tell us about Live From the Surface of the Moon: It's set in the living room of Don and Carol's blue collar home in Cleveland in July and December of 1969.  It's about people behaving in the ways people do when the biggest event of human history is on TV
and there's meatloaf in the oven.

What inspired you to write and direct Live From the Surface of the Moon?: I'm often inspired by conspiracy theories but I cant say for certain that was the case here. Maybe. Probably.  After all, did we ever really land on the moon? When asked to work with Stable Cable Lab, I asked if I could direct because I've only worked with a handful of directors I trust and they already have jobs.

What kind of theater speaks to you? What or who inspires you as an artist?: The theatre that speaks to me is one that recognizes that each night is it's own event. That the energy of production and audience is unique to each performance. Theatre where the actor is given the chance to harness the collective energy, and the audience feel the night is special. Theatre for me is about time.  Mike Leigh is a huge inspiration. But I can't discount everyone I've met and all the plays I've ever seen.

If you could work with anyone you’ve yet to work with, who would it be?: My ego wants to work with Richard Kind, my super-ego wants to work with Julianne Moore and my id wants be in a Paul Thomas Anderson film.

What show have you recommended to your friends?: I enjoyed Rasheeda Speaking at The New Group very much.

Who would play you in a movie about yourself and what would it be called?: Yesterday it would have been called The Muller,  Today The Talker, tomorrow will be Wednesday.  I think Jena Malone would make a good Max Baker.

If you could go back in time and see any play or musical you missed, what would it be?: A night of vaudeville.

If you weren’t working in theater, you would be _____?: Working in TV or film probably

What’s up next?: Live From the Surface of the Moon runs April 2-11 at The Wild Project
