Ali Wentworth is an actress, comedienne and author. TV Viewers may remember her as Jerry's girlfriend "Schmoopie" on the famous soup nazi episode of Seinfeld, or as a cast member on In Living Color, where she became known for her impersonations of Cher, Hillary Clinton, Princess Diana, Brooke Shields, Lisa Marie Presley and Sharon Stone, among others. For 3 seasons she starred as Dr. Elizabeth Goode, a self-obsessed therapist-to-the-stars in the Starz comedy Head Case, and she can currently be seen hosting Daily Shot, a short daily talk show segment on Yahoo! Shine. On the BIG screen she's appeared in Jerry MaguireOffice Space and It's Complicated. She and her husband George Stephanopoulos have two children and split their time between Manhattan and the Hamptons. In this conversation Ali talks about being a wasp, how growing up in a political family shaped her sense of humor and desire to push the envelope, how her experiences with horrible therapists inspired her character on Head Case and why George Stephanopoulos is the perfect man for her.

Kate Mueth is an actress, director, choreographer and producer. In 2008, she founded Neo-Political Cowgirls, a women’s dance theatre company committed to making exciting and provocative theatrical work for and about women. In the fall of 2015, her show EVE will be opening both Off-Broadway and in Berlin. She is also founder of the Mulford Repertory Theatre Company, a summer Equity company in East Hampton, NY. In this second half of our conversation, Kate talks about the future of experimental theater; why an immersive theater experience is important to a world disconnected by technology; how the language of mythology can lead to a deeper understanding of human motivation, and the universal forces that make up the whole self; and why her intention is never to make a social or political statement but always to raise questions. #godeep

Kate Mueth is an actress, director, choreographer and producer. In 2008, she founded Neo-Political Cowgirls, a women’s dance theatre company committed to making exciting and provocative theatrical work for and about women. In the fall of 2015, her show EVE will be opening both Off-Broadway and in Berlin. She is also founder of the Mulford Repertory Theatre Company, a summer Equity company in East Hampton, NY.  Kate's directing credits include: Wody Girtch Mama, Trojan Women Redux, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), Sylvia, All in the Timing, Miss Electricity and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife among many others; and she's worked with everyone from Blythe Danner to Tony Walton to Tovah Feldshuh to Peter Boyle. She has appeared at Lincoln Center with New York City Opera in the world premiere of Monodramas and continues to work in creating exceptional, contemporary dance, theater and film work based in the Hamptons and NYC.

In the first of our two-part conversation, Kate talks about how her formative years shaped her as a storyteller, why finding your voice has the power to heal, what is means to feel fulfilled and supported as an artist, and how- on and off stage- she defiantly breaks down walls by letting her imagination lead the way, and creating work for women that honors the feminine within us all. It gets deep. So get comfortable, press play and hang onto your f***ing hat/pants.
