This Wooden O

Two theatre nerds talking to cool people and saving the world one drink at a time.


Every week, we introduce you to a brilliant artist and explore their unique point of view on making theater, particularly the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Along the way, we hit peak geekitude on everything from Star Wars to Ancient Greek.


This Wooden O is the official podcast of Queens, NYC based theater company Rude Grooms (rudegrooms.com) hosted by our Master of Casting and Company Management Daniel Kemper (danielkemperacts.com), and Master of the Revels Montgomery Sutton (montgomerysutton.com).
