Joan Marcus
Harris Yulin and Jennifer Mudge in 'The Plot' by Will Eno, directed by Oliver Butler, at Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven.

The New York Times has called Harris Yulin "something of the character actor's character actor." You know him from, well... pretty much everything: Scarface, Ghostbusters II, Clear and Present Danger, Bean, The Hurricane, Rush Hour 2, Training Day, The Place Beyond the Pines, 24, Veep, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Ozark. It goes on.

Yulin is here playing Righty in the Yale Repertory Theatre's world premiere production of The Plot, which is playwright Will Eno's latest. Eno's previous work includes MiddletownThe Open House; The Realistic Joneses, which also premiered at Yale Rep and which went on to Broadway; and Thom Pain (based on nothing), which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama.

Yulin and Eno (and Eno's adorable daughter, Albertine) are our guests.


  • Albertine - The adorable daughter of Will Eno and Maria Dizzia
  • Will Eno - An Obie Award-, Drama Desk Award-, and Lucille Lortel Award-winning playwright
  • Harris Yulin - An actor and director who has been appearing on stage and screen for going on 60 years
