Matt Mueller on Finding Out He Got His Harry Potter Role at a Truck Stop & Why Jessie Mueller Makes Him Feel Like a ‘Proud Grandpa’

first_imgMatt Mueller(Photos by Caitlin McNaney for Broadway.com) from $40.00 Related Shows View Comments Matt Muellerin Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Photo by Matthew Murphy) Flash forward to Mueller driving in sleet “somewhere in the middle of Wyoming.” “I had finished a gig and was on a road trip,” he explained. “I was like, ‘I’ve got to get gas.’ I had just pulled up, and had a call from my agent. I went up to the truck stop and wandered around on the phone.” With the delight of earning the coveted Cursed Child role comes great responsibility. “What’s so wonderful is that they’re all these same people we fell in love with in the books. They are these people that we love that so many of us have literally and literarily grown up with. It was a little daunting to be like, ‘Everybody knows this guy,'” Mueller said. “The theatricality of it gives us license to be our own person. He’s one of the most courageous [characters] because he’s probably the most scared. He always steps up and always has. It’s a glorious thing to get to do.”Mueller’s sisters include Six-bound star Abby Mueller and Tony winner Jessie Mueller. He spoke about what it was like to witness Jessie’s Broadway debut in On a Clear Day You Can See Forever with Harry Connick Jr. “It was just such a wacky thing. I remember the day she left. We were outside of her apartment, and she got into a big black car and drove away like some sort of song,” he said. “It was all just incredibly exciting. I will never forget going to see Clear Day. That was definitely sort of a proud grandpa moment. Any time I see one of my siblings do what they do, it’s a joy.” Fingers crossed that audiences can catch all three Muellers on Broadway together one of these days!See Matt Mueller shine in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at Broadway’s Lyric Theatre!Watch the full #LiveAtFive episode below!  Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 30:19Loaded: 0%00:00Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently behind liveLIVERemaining Time -30:19 1xPlayback RateChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedEnglishAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Abby Muellercenter_img Jessie Mueller Matt Mueller is making a magical Broadway debut as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. “We started performances in March and started rehearsals in December of last year. [Rehearsal was like] going to Hogwarts. We went to Hogwarts for three months,'” Mueller told Paul Wontorek in a recent interview on Broadway.com’s #LiveAtFive. “I auditioned initially in Chicago. My agent told me it was happening. I said, ‘That sounds like a lot of fun. There’s no way.’ I never thought anything would happen.”Mueller proceeded to participate in the audition process for the Broadway juggernaut. “You had your little family for the 90 minutes that were in the movement call. Everybody had a chopstick that was a wand,” he recalled. “The audition process for this has been and will probably remain one of the best audition processes ever. There’s so much love for the piece and what it is and the people who are involved in it. It was very apparent from the get-go. It’s a great vibe to have. Everybody’s there for the same reason. Everybody’s excited to see you and what you’re going to bring. It was just really, really cool.” Star Files Front Row Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Matt Muellerlast_img read more

EDIBLE ARRANGEMENT: Le Courtois isn’t playing with food — she’s making…

first_img Viviane Le Courtois is showing Raw, Cooked, Fermented on Monday June 13, 2016 at Denver Botanic Gardens.Photo by Gabriel Christus/Aurora Sentinel A cast iron artichoke on Monday June 13, 2016 at Denver Botanic Gardens.Photo by Gabriel Christus/Aurora Sentinel AURORA | Julia Child once said that, “In France, cooking is a serious art form and a national sport.”Now, more than a decade after the death of the woman credited with aggrandizing commercial cooking in America, local mixed-media artist Viviane Le Courtois is working to solidify that sentiment stateside and take it to a distinctly unique level.Late last month, Le Courtois opened a new exhibit at Denver Botanic Gardens entitled “Raw, Cooked, Fermented,” which features more than a dozen pieces of various media that use food to create art.Hanging on the naked concrete walls of the DBG’s Gates Garden Court Gallery, several maple-framed pieces coyly hide ties to the organic world. Upon examination, a series of seemingly diffident sketches depicting different home goods like pickles, kimchi and sauerkraut is revealed to be stained with the respective juice of each concoction — a sketch of giant red mustard leaves pops with a magnetizing scarlet hue. Across the room, a series of embryonic prints made with kombucha hang beside a pair of cast iron artichokes.

A program manager at Downtown Aurora Visual Arts by day, the Denver-based artist beams as she describes some of the smallest pieces in the new exhibit, which are comprised of several ceramic onions and garlic cloves. They’re foods her family has grown in her native Brittany, France for generations.“When I was a kid we ate tons of artichokes and cauliflower,” she says. “Foraging, cooking, art, it’s just always been a part of my life.”Le Courtois said that her fascination with the relationship between art and food started early in her childhood, when her mother scolded her for picking flowers out of the garden to make paint. “Because that was all I had,” she says. “I had no art supplies, so I had to find my own.”But it wasn’t until she was 19 years old and a student at art school in Niece, France that Le Courtois’ professional blending of food and art began to flourish. One of her first works at school involved making sculptures out of chewed up licorice roots.A Denver resident for more than 20 years, Le Courtois is always working on a project that brings the kitchen into the studio — or vice versa. She’s typically working on some sort of new “kitchen experiment,” like growing a kombucha culture for her next round of zinc prints, or nursing one of her various jarred goods in her new house in the East Montclair neighborhood.It’s that lifestyle that made Le Courtois’ work ideal for the gardens ongoing exploration and exhibition of the intersection between art and food, according to Kim Manajek, associate director of exhibitions, art and interpretation at DBG.“It is a beautifully cohesive exhibition that is a perfect fit for Denver Botanic Gardens’ Gates Garden Court Gallery,” Manjek said in a statement.Despite the divine match, Le Courtois said that she was challenged by DBG’s stipulation that she couldn’t use any truly live material in the exhibit.“The show had to last for two months, and they didn’t want anything in the display case that could attract bugs,” she said. “I think it was a challenge for me to not work with any live material in a place that has a bunch of live things.”Le Courtois will be leading a workshop at DBG at the end of July on how to grow your own art supplies. Her completed works will be on display daily at the Gates Garden Court Gallery through the end of July.
