CHATHAM — The Mac-Haydn Theatre has released the third episode of In The Meantime, a weekly webcast series hosted by Producing Artistic Director John Saunders, as part of the Mac-Haydn Online virtual programming initiative. The episode can be found at

Episode 3 is the first of a two-episode series featuring Broadway veteran George Dvorsky, last seen on the Mac-Haydn stage as Mr. Mushnik in the 2019 production of Little Shop of Horrors. Audiences loved George as Harold in the 2014 production of The Full Monty and for his Berkshire Theatre Award-winning performance as Daddy Warbucks in the 2018 production of Annie. Dvorsky tells Saunders about his history in the theatre and film industries, unforgettable Broadway experiences, and favorite memories at the Mac-Haydn Theatre.

As a gesture of support to the Mac-Haydn artistic community, John Saunders has announced that the Theatre will offer a 50/50 split of any donations to the Bright Future Fund that mention each episode’s guest for the week following their interview. The donation link can be found at

Episodes of In The Meantime premiere each Friday at 12pm on the Mac-Haydn Theatre YouTube channel. The series showcases notable Mac-Haydn alumni, discussing their artistic endeavors during quarantine as well as their past experiences working at the theatre. The Mac-Haydn Online programming initiative also includes “Mac-Haydn Mondays,” a weekly live stream from the theatre’s Instagram account (@machaydntheatre) on Mondays at 5pm.
