About the show

Double K Film & Theatre and Dimo Kim Musical Theatre Factory present a musical thriller about a psychologist, a criminal defendant, and a legal system that would stop at nothing to gain an alleged killer's confession. More…

When a famous author calls a temp agency looking for an apprentice, the perfect candidate appears at his door. Witty, studious, and eager to please, Matt Sinclair quickly makes an impression.

“Convoluted, confusing and pointless, this overwrought tale of the psychological examination of a serial killer with multiple personalities might have made for an interesting dramatic thriller along the lines of ‘Agnes of God.’ Instead, ‘Interview: A New Musical,’ is a musical…Composer Soo Hyun Huh’s original music is a fine and eclectic assortment of modern melodies. The English lyrics are written by Bryan Michaels. The combined results are stilted and pedestrian." Full Review
