Max McLean on New Hit C.S. Lewis Movie, The Most Reluctant Convert

Description

Acclaimed stage actor Max McLean talks about how the pandemic shut down his theater business, and how that adversity caused him to pivot and turn his popular stage play about C.S. Lewis into a film, a film which is seeing record success. McLean has read so much Lewis, and played him on stage so many hundreds of times, and internalized his ideas to such an extent, that in some sense, talking to him is like talking to C.S. Lewis himself. To join the conversation listen in to our all-too-brief conversation and make sure to see the film yourself. To find a location near you, go to www.cslewismovie.com.
