Episode 208 – The Accidentally and Incredibly Brave, Maddie Corman

I don’t know that I could have done it.

But, then again, I’m not Maddie Corman.

As you’ll hear in my intro to this podcast, I’ve known about Maddie Corman since I was a teenager.  Chances are, you have too.  After all, she has been in over 25 films, including Some Kind of Wonderful and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. 

But all that could never have prepared her for the real-life drama she was dragged into a few years ago.

She came out the other side of it and, then, she decided to write about it . . . and perform it . . . in a play called Accidentally Brave.

And you know what?  I KNOW I could not have done it.

Maddie and I talked about how she got the courage to do what many in the world would not, as well as . . .

  • How sharing trauma is a powerful tool for storytelling.
  • The process of how she created her one-person show . . . and how you can create one too.
  • How to tell the difference between an actor and someone who just wants to be famous.
  • Just who deserves to be sent an invitation to your first reading.
  • Why you need friends who will give you honest feedback and not just tell you how great your shows is.
