The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity first popped up on my radar when it got rave reviews in the NY Times (See here). The play was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 2010. My writer friends in NYC raved about it and when I heard it was coming to Los Angeles, I reached out to the writer Kristoffer Diaz. In this I Want Wrestling podcast, we talk about his love of wrestling, the inspiration behind the play, what WWE stars and executives have seen the play, and more. If you liked the Dutch Mantell podcast, this is another unique look at writing. Listen to the podcast at http://iwantwrestling.com/2011/08/18/new-podcast-playwright-kristoffer-diaz-ktalks-writing/
