More about Permission to Speak: Four of the most brilliant minds in TV and movies come together to present the ground-breaking emotional live theater experience Permission to Speak. Fresh off a sold-out run off-Broadway, Permission to Speak features hilarious and jaw-dropping stories from audience members co-starring alongside Emmy and Peabody Award-winning comedian/actor Paul Mecurio, who punctuates the evening with his own jokes and anecdotes.

The show’s creators have been honored with a combined 33 Emmys, six Peabodys and two Grammy Awards, but the real stars of the show are the audience themselves, who volunteer to join Paul on stage. Paul fearlessly, but respectfully, uses humor and compassion to create dynamic exchanges that lead to meaningful and often surprisingly unexpected connections. Audience members are comfortably and confidently empowered to reveal personal stories that are fun, inspiring, compelling and relatable.

If Paul’s name sounds familiar, it’s probably because you saw him on one of his countless appearances on The Late Show with Stephen ColbertCBS Sunday MorningThe Tonight Show, HBO, NBC, ABC, MSNBC or his own Comedy Central TV special.

Director Frank Oz brings a touch of his movie and TV magic to the show. Oz’s credits include motion pictures Dirty Rotten ScoundrelsBowfingerStepford Wives, and Little Shop of Horrors. His close collaboration with Jim Henson, creating and performing many Muppet characters, led to his iconic work as the voice and puppeteer of Yoda in the Star Wars franchise.

The set of Permission to Speak is as much a star of the show as anyone on stage. Behind the show’s ingenious environment are 23-time Emmy Award Winner for Production Design, Jim Fenhagen, best known for countless late night TV shows, the Olympic Games and five Super Bowls, and animator J.J. Sedelmaier, the artist behind MTV’s Beavis & Butt-Head, Saturday Night Live’s TV Funhouse cartoons (including The Ambiguously Gay Du,) ABC’s relaunch of Schoolhouse Rock, and Cartoon Network’s Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law.

The real magic of Permission to Speak is the humanity, candor and organic humor of its participants – and Paul. All guests willingly share their fascinating stories, bringing the entire audience on a fun, emotional journey that connects them all.
