25 - Tim Robbins shares stories of refugees in play 'The New Colossus'

Apr 23, 2018, 06:00 AM

Actor, director, producer, musician and more -- Tim Robbins is best known for his roles in "Shawshank Redemption," "The Player," "Mystic River," and the recent HBO series "Here and Now."

But 37 years ago, he started a theater company in Los Angeles called The Actor's Gang, and throughout the success of his career, he's continued to act, write and direct plays there. 

He joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about the play he's currently directing, called "The New Colossus," which features 12 actors sharing their ancestors' stories of immigration and fleeing from oppression to freedom. It’s performed in 12 different languages.  

The play features live music, poetry and asks the question -- who are we as a nation right now? 

"The New Colossus" is showing Saturdays through May 12, 2018 at The Actor's Gang in Culver City.
